Aim Recent studies increasingly use statistical methods to infer biotic interactions from co-occurrence information at a large spatial scale. However, disentangling biotic interactions from other factors that can affect co-occurrence patterns at the macroscale is a major challenge. ApproachFindingsWe present a set of questions that analysts and reviewers should ask to avoid erroneously ...
