MacroCAIC: revealing correlates of species richness by comparative analysis
Agapow, Paul-Michael; Isaac, Nick J. B.. 2002 MacroCAIC: revealing correlates of species richness by comparative analysis. Diversity & Distributions, 8 (1). 41. 10.1046/j.1366-9516.2001.00121.xFull text not available from this repository.
Studies of species richness have been hampered by the use of methods that fail to account for phylogenetic non-independence of character states. MacroCAIC is a computer program that extends the method of phylogenetically independent contrasts to encompass species-richness data. It examines user-selected characters for correlation with species richness, thus allowing clearer identification of the factors driving large-scale patterns of diversity.
