Generating Virtual Fundamental and Realised Niches

The ability to generate virtual niches enables virtual ecology experiments that have been advocated for evaluating species-environment relationship models. Using multivariate normal distributions and matrix algebra this package provides a unique computational framework to generate integrated fundamental and realised niches, which is important given differences in possible complexity of realised niche shapes that result from biotic interactions Etherington and Omondiagbe (2019) .
