[R-meta] Spatial-temporal meta-analysis

Dear Wolfgang and All,

I am still working on an approach to evaluate variations in effect sizes in
space and time. I have several replicates of effect sizes (Fisher's Z) in
different populations and/or breeding seasons for each species. My
hypothesis is that effect size varies in space and time. Then, I want to
use a random model to evaluate if a estimative of variation in effect size
is high when compared to a null model. I am wondering if I can use
coefficient of variance (CV) and number of replicates in rma.mv function of
metafor package to built a random model controlling phylogenetic signal. Do
you agree with my approach or suggest to use another measure of variation
in replicates of effect size or a different estimate of weight?

Best wishes,

Rafael R. Moura.
