    $\begingroup$ The motivating examples at the relevant Wikipedia page seems like a good place to start; e.g. consider the tree example where (impact of covariates being equal) different counts of trees would be expected if you looked at a large area or a small one. Could you identify where the examples and subsequent discussion are unclear or what you need beyond that? $\endgroup$ – Glen_b Jun 11 at 22:43
