Estimating Litter Decomposition Rate in Single-Pool Models Using Nonlinear Beta Regression

Figure 9

Daily decomposition rate (k) estimates for the Hobbie (SH) [14], Laliberté and Tylianakis (LT) [12] and Hobbie and Gough (H&G) [10] data compared by error distribution (beta or normal) used to estimate k. (A) untransformed (B) Smithson and Verkuilen (SV) [6] transformed and (C) replacement (zeros = missing data; values ≥1 = 0.9999) transformed data sets. Insets in (b) and (c) show only the SH and H&G data.
