Fisher's logarithmic series model (Fisher et al. (1943)) is a classical model in statistical ecology. In this paper we show that this model is a key model linking three models discussed in Takemura (1997), i.e., Poisson-gamma model (Bethlehem et al. (1990)), Dirichlet-multinomial model (Takemura (1997)), and Ewens model (Ewens (1990)). This connection opens up the possibility of applying existing techniques of statistical ecology to the problem of microdata disclosure risk assessment.
