kernel.evenness.contribution {BAT}R Documentation

Contribution of each observation to the evenness of a kernel density hypervolume.

Description

Contribution of each species or individual to the evenness of one or more kernel hypervolumes.

Usage

kernel.evenness.contribution(comm)

Arguments

comm

A 'Hypervolume' or 'HypervolumesList' object, preferably built using function kernel.build.

Details

The contribution of each observation (species or individual) to the total evenness of a kernel hypervolume. Contribution to evenness is calculated as the difference in evenness between the total hypervolume and a second hypervolume lacking this specific observation (i.e., leave-one-out approach; Mammola & Cardoso, 2020). Note that the contribution of a species or individual can be negative, if the removal of an observation increases the total evenness.

Value

A vector or matrix with the contribution values of each species or individual for each community or species respectively.
