In ecology, co-occurrence networks can help us identify relationships between species using repeated measurements of the species' presence or absence. When evaluating potential relationships, we might ask: Given presence-absence data, are two species co-occurring at a frequency higher or lower than ... READ the POST
Understanding probabilistic species co-occurrence
In this post, we're going to examine the probabilistic model as seen in Veech's A probabilistic model for analysing species co‐occurrence (2012). We'll start by defining the model before moving into calculating co-occurrence probabilities in R.
