ArticleDobson, F. StephenIn their recent comment in this journal, T. M. Blackburn and colleagues called into question the use of standardized partial regression modelling (also called path analysis and structural equation modelling) when null expectations for regression coeff . . .
ArticleImportance of causal analysis of threats to oceanic avifaunas is important: reply to Blackburn et al.Trevino, Heather S.We are pleased that Blackburn et al. (2008 [this issue]) have taken an interest in our causal modeling of threatened bird faunas on oceanic islands (Trevino et al. 2007). Our results indicated possible environmental influences on the number of threate . . .
ArticleKarels, Timothy J.A recent paper by Karels et al., 'The biogeography of avian extinctions on oceanic islands' (Journal of Biogeography, 2008, 35, 1106-1111), uses structural equation modelling to assess the causes of the number of island bird species driven extinct in . . .
ArticleSkibiel, Amy L.Results of the study by Blackburn et al. (2004a) of avifauna on oceanic islands suggest that distance from the mainland and time since European colonization have major influences on species extinctions and that island area is a significant but seconda . . .
