Figure 9

Scatterplots of the p-values obtained when conducting the local cluster analysis under CSR assumption (Model I) or more complex neutral models. Model III reproduces the pattern of spatial correlation as well as the regional background of SMR values, while Model II accounts only for the spatial correlation.
