Extension of the gambin model to multimodal species abundance distributions

Abstract:

1.Species abundance distributions (SADs) are one of the most widely used tools in macroecology, and it has become increasingly apparent that many empirical SADs can best be described as multimodal. However, only a few SAD models have been extended to incorporate multiple modes and no software packages are available to fit multimodal SAD models. In this study, we present an extension of the gambin SAD model to multimodal SADs. 2.We derive the maximum likelihood equations for fitting the bimod...
