Abstract

Beaury et al. (2020) attempt to address the scale dependence of evidence for biotic resistance by including environmental covariates that can account for total species richness. However, this approach will incorrectly estimate relationships, driven by the accuracy of the covariates rather than the true relationship between native and non-native species.

Methods

This data set includes the script required to recreate and run the simulation and analyses described in the associated manuscript.
