Response to Collins et al. (2011)


Journal Article (Letter)

We note serious problems in Collins et al. (Journal of Biogeography, 2011, doi: ): failure to use over 80% of the available data; failure to use one of the two available archipelagoes; mistaken inclusion of four species; and reliance on a grossly inadequate number of null matrices. Curing the paper of these problems would have strengthened the evidence for checkerboards and the role of competition. © 2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
