The species-area relationship is often referred to as the closest thing to a rule in ecology (Lawton 1999, Franzen et al.
Although studies on the relationship between species richness and island area have been important to the development of many study areas of ecology, evolution, and conservation biology, understanding the species-area relationship generated from this study requires a closer look at its underlying processes.
Based on the power law of species-area relationship (SAR), the metabolic theory of ecology (MTE), and the middle domain effect hypothesis (MDE), Chi and Tang [60] tended to explore the determinant mechanisms of plant species distribution pattern of Taibai Mountain, but they failed to test Rapoport's elevational rule which is closely related to the elevational pattern of species richness [11].
Analysis of an evolutionary species-area relationship. Nature, 408:847-850.
In lieu of any direct way to measure the rate of species loss, conservationists have relied on reversing the so-called "species-area relationship," whereby scientists tally the number of species in a given area and then estimate how quickly more show up or evolve as viable habitat increases (or decreases in the case of reversing the concept).
London, May 19 (ANI): The most widely used method for estimating extinction rates, based on the species-area relationship (SAR), seems to be incorrect, after a new analysis found that these rates might have been overestimated by as much as 160 percent.
"Simple species-area relationship analyses also project the extinction of more than 100,000 species, a massive loss that will invalidate any commitment to biodiversity conservation," said the letter, signed by Jean Paul Metzger, the Instituto de Biociencias da Universidade de Sao Paulo (USP); Lewinsohn Thomas, Departamento de Biologia Animal da Universidade de Campinas (UNICAMP); Luciano Verdad and Luiz Antonio Martinelli, of the Centro de Energia Nuclear na Agricultura (CENA), of USP; Ricardo Ribeiro Rodrigues, Departamento de Ciencias Biologicas, Escola Superior de Agricultura Luiz de Queiroz (ESALQ), USP; and Carlos Alfredo Joly, of the Instituto de Biologia, UNICAMP.
In the same way it can be deduced that the decrease of species with latitude in the world's oceans cannot be due to the species-area relationship and, on the other hand, can be explained by the theory of the minimum temperature suggested by Birney and Monjeau (2003), as well as the continental pattern.
The constant z can be used to compare the species-area relationship of one region with another (Arrhenius 1921).
