Abstract In response to Hawkins et al. (2007) we show clearly that in the presence of spatial autocorrelation, choice of modelling method can have profound effects on the estimates of regression coefficients. We demonstrate these effects using some simple simulations and conclude that spatially explicit analytical techniques such as generalised least squares are to be preferred with spatial data.
