BLISS does fundamental wildlife-habitat relationships in models. not suffer from collinearity, and substantially reduces The spatial scales of habitat relationships are often computation time of studies. We present a simulation unknown, and are expected to follow a multi-scale study to validate our method and apply our method to a hierarchy. Typical frequentist or information theoretic case-study of land cover predictors for ring-necked approaches often suffer under collinearity in multi- pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) abundance in scale studies, fail to converge when models are Nebraska, USA. complex or represent an intractable computational Results Our method returns accurate descriptions of burden when candidate model sets are large. the explanatory power of multiple spatial scales, and Objectives Our objective was to implement an
