Ryan and collaborator James Rosindell, from Imperial College London, have just published a chapter in a new book about the species–area relationship (SAR), edited by Thomas Matthews, Kostas Triantis, and Robert Whittaker, and published by Cambridge University Press. Their chapter concerns the SARs of neutral ecology theory, and covers topics ranging from SARs predicted by simple non-spatial neutral models to those predicted under habitat fragmentation scenarios in spatial models.
