Poisson Regression Models of Species Abundance

Abstract

Species abundance regression models have been fitted with the GLIM computer package. These models take into account the discrete nature of the dependent variable, numbers of species. The inappropriateness of conventional normal regression models is demonstrated by the use of a normal probability plot.
