My question is almost identical to this one. I'm searching for a probability distribution for skewed data that allows for zeros. The purpose is to fit a GLM model. My data on species-area distributions are heavy right skewed. Additional variables are "partitioned area" according to latitude- so area in tropical and temperate zones, thus the data now includes zeros.
So my question is; is there a probability distribution, e.g. similar to the log-normal, but which allows for zeros?
Any pointers would be highly appreciated.
