The biotic package provides a main calculation function, wrapper functions for easy calculation of specific indices and a data transposition function which can be used to prepare data for analysis when needed.
The main function is
calcindex which allows the
calculation of any of the indices implemented.
A function is provided for each of the individual indices to
allow for quick calculations. An example is
calcPSI which implements calculation of the
PSI index of sedimentation impacts.
transposedata function allows for simple
conversion between the default format with taxa in rows and
samples in columns and the transpose of this.
