Abstract
Camp et al. (2008) extend the ideas discussed in Dixon and Pechmann (2005). Our paper used equivalence regions to test for negligible trends (null hypothesis that trends are not negligible). Their paper suggests also using equivalence regions to test an alternative hypothesis of “ecologically meaningful” trends (null hypothesis that trends are negligible but not zero).
