Description

Function to generate the rarefaction data from a given sample

Usage

1
2
divsubsamples(mainsamp, nrf, minrarefac=1,
maxrarefac=length(format.input(mainsamp)), NResamples=1000)

Arguments

mainsamp

the main sample, either as a 2-column data.frame (species ID, count of species), or a vector of species IDs.

nrf

difference between lengths of successive rarefaction datapoints.

minrarefac

minimum rarefaction data x-axis value. Default is 1.

maxrarefac

maximum rarefaction data x-axis value. Default is length of the sample mainsamp.

NResamples

number of resamples used to calculate the rarefaction data.

Details

This function produces a vector of subsamples diversity values with subsample lengths evenly distributed between a specified minimum and maximum number. The curvature of the rarefaction curve can be obtained with the function Curvature.

Value

a list of class divsubsamples containing resampling results (i.e. the diversity data). This includes the following:

RarefacXAxis

vector of x-axis rarefaction data

RarefacYAxis

vector of y-axis rarefaction data

div_sd

vector of y-axis rarefaction data standard deviations

NResamples

number of sampling iterations used to calculate sample means of each subsample diversity
