DiversitySampler: Functions for re-sampling a community matrix to compute diversity indices at different sampling levels.

Share:

There are two functions in this package, which can be used together to estimate the Shannon's Diversity index at different levels of sample size. A Monte-Carlo procedure is used to re-sample a given observation at each level of sampling. The expectation being that the mean of the re-sampling will approach Shannon's diversity index at that sample level.
