    Abstract

    Ecologists are often interested in studying the relationship between species and the environment, and between changes in the environment and changes in species occurrence. They consider that the spatial scales of the data generating processes for both the environmental and species variables matter, and that observed spatial dependence may be a 'red herring', because the process scales of variables have not been captured appropriately. In studying regional growth, one is often obliged to use administrative entities that may not correspond to the scales of data generating processes. The paper will review the red herring controversy in macroecology, and relate it to the discovery of spatial regimes in connection with the club-convergence hypothesis.
