Scale dependency in native–exotic richness relationships revisited


In their seminal paper, Shea and Chesson (Trends in Ecology & Evolution, 2002, 17, 170) developed a highly cited model (S&C model) showing scale dependency in the native–exotic richness relationships. Two decades later, extensive additional data have been accumulated, leading to new findings and insights. Accordingly, two updates were made here to the original S&C model: (1) changing the “negative” richness relationship between natives and exotics to “non-consistent” or “non-significant”; and (2) modifying the original diagram to correctly represent native and exotic species richness and their correlations across both small and large scales
