On selection of functional response models: Holling's models and more
BioControl 58 (3), 293-298
Abstract: Model selection is a common and established research method. Statistically rigorous model selection methods are used in a variety of research fields. In contrast, studies that characterize functional response models commonly use a model selection method that is specific to functional response studies. The specific method aims to distinguish between Holling's type II and type III functional response models. This paper discusses problems associated with the specific method and suggests that it would be better to use general model selection methods that allow to consider a variety of models.
