MicroNiche: Microbial Niche Measurements

Measures niche breadth and overlap of microbial taxa from large matrices. Niche breadth measurements include Levins' niche breadth (Bn) index, Hurlbert's Bn and Feinsinger's proportional similarity (PS) index. (Feinsinger, P., Spears, E.E., Poole, R.W. (1981) <doi:10.2307/1936664>). Niche overlap measurements include Levin's Overlap (Ludwig, J.A. and Reynolds, J.F. (1988, ISBN:0471832359)) and a Jaccard similarity index of Feinsinger's PS values between taxa pairs, as Proportional Overlap.
