kernel.hotspots {BAT}R Documentation

Hotspots in hypervolumes.

Description

Identify hotspots in kernel density hypervolumes based on minimum volume needed to cover a given proportion of random points.

Usage

kernel.hotspots(comm, prop = 0.5)

Arguments

comm

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

prop

Proportion of random points to be included.

Details

Estimates the hotspots of one or more communities using kernel density hypervolumes as in Carmona et al. (2021).

Value

A 'Hypervolume' or 'HypervolumeList' with the hotspots of each site.

Examples

## Not run: 
comm = rbind(c(1,3,0,5,3), c(3,2,5,0,0))
colnames(comm) = c("SpA", "SpB", "SpC", "SpD", "SpE")
rownames(comm) = c("Site 1", "Site 2")

trait = data.frame(body = c(1,2,3,4,4), beak = c(1,5,4,1,2))
rownames(trait) = colnames(comm)

hv = kernel.build(comm[1,], trait)
plot(hv)
kernel.alpha(hv)

hot = kernel.hotspots(hv, 0.5)
plot(hot)
kernel.alpha(hot)

hvlist = kernel.build(comm, trait)
hot = kernel.hotspots(hvlist, 0.1)
kernel.alpha(hot)
