      • I was referencing (my limited understanding of) your trait-based Price Equation partitioning work. It is my understanding that the context dependent effect is a term which represents any variance not partitioned into either the species richness, or species composition effects. Hence ‘left over’, or seemingly unexplained, variance.

        Like I said, my understanding of this work is limited so this could very well be misinterpretation. I brought this up with you during the q&a after your talk at McGill in 2010.

        Thanks for the note!

      • No, the context dependence effect isn’t “unexplained” or a “remainder” term. It’s analogous to “transmission bias” in evolution (which isn’t “unexplained” or a “remainder term” either). Have another look at Fox 2006 Ecology.
