Estimation of power function distribution with application to ecological relative abundance
| STATISTICA & APPLICAZIONI - 2008 - 2
In this paper we derive Bayesian and non-Bayesian estimators for the parameter of the power function
distribution, and prediction intervals for the maximum of a future sample. We apply our approach
to field data of plant species relative abundance, the abundance of a given species divided
by the total abundance of all plant species in given a community, collected in a biodiversity project
in central Europe.
