Species abundance distribution comparisons
For my dissertation research, I competed different models of the species abundance distribution with a wide range of taxonomic groups to determine which model best described the distribution of species abundance in an ecological community. I also compiled a species abundance dataset from the literature. A link to that can be found under Research Products.
The video of my defense is provided below, and has been fully close-captioned.
