Soil total phosphorus threshold in the Everglades: a Bayesian changepoint analysis for multinomial response data

Song S. Qian, Yangdong Pan, Ryan S. King
2004 Ecological Indicators  
As a cumulative indicator of phosphorus loading to the wetland system, the top 10 cm soil TP concentration is often used to indicate eutrophication.  ...  A Bayesian changepoint model was developed in this study. The statistical model can directly use species assemblage data as a measure of structural change.  ...  This shows that the mesocosm soil TP may have not reached an equilibrium with TP loading and thus may not be indicative of phosphorus availability.  ...
