Ecological Community Correlogram


The CommunityCorrelogram package is designed for the geostatistical analysis of ecological community datasets with either a spatial or temporal distance component.


Package: CommunityCorrelogram
Type: Package
Version: 1.0
Date: 2012-10-30
License: GPL-2
Depends: methods, vegan

The package includes functions for constructing correlogram structure functions using either the Mantel or ANOSIM statistics, for assisting in selection of an appropriate lag size, and for modeling correlogram significance plots to determine correlation range.

The commcorrelogram() package adds functionality over existing Mantel correlogram functions by allowing directional (anisotropic) restrictions in both the xy (surface) plane and the z (depth) plane, and allowing usage of temporal and spatial information in the same correlogram. It also contains an automatic modeling function that calculates the correlation distance of communities or other multidimensional datasets.
