(2012) Response to Comments on “Productivity Is a Poor Predictor of Plant Species Richness”. Science, 335 (6075). p. 1441. ISSN 0036-8075Full text not available from this repository.
Pan et al. claim that our results actually support a strong linear positive relationship between productivity and richness, whereas Fridley et al. contend that the data support a strong humped relationship. These responses illustrate how preoccupation with bivariate patterns distracts from a deeper understanding of the multivariate mechanisms that control these important ecosystem properties.
