Model averaging in ecology: a review of Bayesian, information-theoretic and tactical approaches for predictive inference

The review paper, by Dormann, C.F., Calabrese, J.M., Gurutzeta, G., Matechou, E., Bahn, V., Bartoń, K., et al. to appear in Ecological Monographs, explores different model averaging techniques in terms of ways to calculate the model weights and to combine predictions from different models. The advantages and disadvantages of model averaging are discussed and code for methods falling under three categories (Bayesian, information theoretical and tactical) is provided.
