Towards novel approaches to modelling biotic interactions in multispecies assemblages at large spatial extents: Modelling multispecies interactions


Aim Biotic interactions – within guilds or across trophic levels – have widely been ignored in species distribution models (SDMs). This synthesis outlines the development of ‘species interaction distribution models’ (SIDMs), which aim to incorporate multispecies interactions at large spatial extents using interaction matrices.
