Rank-abundance data frame

Description

Creates a data frame with ranked abundances of rad-class from a vector of abundances or fitted model object.

Usage

rad(x)

Arguments

x

a numerical vector of abundances or an object of class fitsad or fitrad.

Value

an object of rad-class, which is a data frame with two vectors:

rank

integer; abundance rank of each species (integer), from most abundant (rank=1) to the least abundant (rank=length(rank))

abund

numeric; abundance of each species
