commcorrelogram-class {CommunityCorrelogram}R Documentation

Class "community.correlogram"

Description

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

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("commcorrelogram", ...), which will be useful for subsequent calls to mod.commcorrelogram or plot.commcorrelogram.

Slots

community.correlogram:

Object of class "data.frame" consisting of:

lag.distance

The average lag distance separating pairs in the lag class

Num.Pairs

The number of pairs in the lag class

statistic

The value of the statistic (Mantel or ANOSIM) for the lag class

significance

The p-value (adjusted if required) of the statistic

Methods

mod

signature(object = "commcorrelogram"): ...

calls mod.commcorrelogram and automatically fits a Gaussian curve to the significance plot of a commcorrelogram object and calculates the correlation range of the data.

plot

signature(x = "commcorrelogram", y = "missing"): ...

calls plot.commcorrelogram for custom visual displays of correlograms allowing visualization of spatial correlation within community.correlogram objects.
