Neigbourhood distance metrics {cati} R Documentation

## Coefficient of variation, mean, minimum and standard deviation of the nearest neigbourhood distance.

### Description

CVNND : Coefficient of variation of the nearest neigbourhood distance

MNND : Mean of the nearest neigbourhood distance

MinNND : Minimum of the nearest neigbourhood distance

SDNND : Standard deviation of the nearest neigbourhood distance

SDND : Standard deviation of the neigbourhood distance

MND : Mean of the neigbourhood distance

### Usage

```	CVNND(traits, div_range =  FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")

MNND(traits, div_range =  FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")

MinNND(traits, div_range =  FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")

SDNND(traits, div_range =  FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")

SDND(trait, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE)

MND(trait, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE)
```

### Arguments

 `traits` Trait vector (uni-trait metric) or traits matrix (Multi-traits metric), traits in column. `trait` Trait vector `div_range` Does metric need to be divided by the range? Default is no. `na.rm` If div_range=TRUE, a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds. `scale.tr` Does traits need to be scale before multi-traits metric calculation? Default is yes. `method.dist` Method to calculate the distance in case of multi-traits metric (function dist). Default is euclidian.

### Value

One value corresponding to the metric value.

```data(finch.ind)

CVNND(traits.finch[,1], na.rm = TRUE)
CVNND(traits.finch[,1], div_range =  TRUE, na.rm = TRUE)
CVNND(traits.finch, na.rm = TRUE)
CVNND(traits.finch, scale.tr = FALSE, na.rm = TRUE)
