 Why do we produce so many errors in ecology?
Using a number of recent examples, I shall try to expose a problem in Ecology: we do produce a lot of wrong results. The reasons are plentiful, and some of the examples I will spend time on show that the devil is in the detail. However, there is also a systemic failure, and I propose some (not very surprising) ideas on how to try and remedy that. As an appetiser, I attach a picture of a re-analysis of a Science paper (same data); the steep curve was published, the shallow our reproduction. Can you spot the difference?
