Partitioning Beta Diversity into Turnover and Nestedness Components

Functions to compute pair-wise dissimilarities (distance matrices) and multiple-site dissimilarities, separating the turnover and nestedness-resultant components of taxonomic (incidence and abundance based), functional and phylogenetic beta diversity.


betapart 1.5.1

New features

Updated functional.betapart.core() to allow parallel computing

betapart 1.5.0

New features

New functions to fit, plot and bootstrap distance-decay patterns

betapart 1.5.0 includes three new functions:

  • decay.model() fits a negative-exponential or mower law function describing the decay of assemblage similarity with sptatial distance.

  • plot.decay() allows plotting the curves fitted with decay.model().

  • boot.coefs.decay() bootstraps the parameters of the functions fitted with decay.model().
