For this reason, the **negative binomial distribution** (nbd) was deemed more appropriate than Poisson.

The **negative binomial distribution** is more robust for modeling zero-inflated and over-dispersed insect count data (Sileshi 2006).

lf you were to believe that the stable distribution or the **negative binomial distribution** were the only two hypotheses to be considered, considered them equally likely (and were willing to overlook the negative and fractional home run predictions of the stable distribution) the "weight of the evidence" (Good 1981; Peirce 1878) would still be against the power law distribution.

The most common alternative, in such cases, is the use of the **negative binomial distribution** model.

Frequency distributions of traps (on all days and their average distribution) were then statistically compared to a **negative binomial distribution** using chi-square tests to determine if the spatial distributions of traps were significantly contagious.

Because the data were overdispersed, the zero-truncated **negative binomial distribution** fit the data better than the zero-truncated Poisson distribution based on the likelihood-ratio test.

In both the samples the **negative binomial distribution** adequately explained the data an [chi square] confirmed the closeness of fit.
