Description

Calculates the solution of a Canonical Correspondence Analysis Biplot

Usage

1
CCA(P, Z, alpha = 1, dimens = 4)

Arguments

P

Abundance Matrix of sites by species.

Z

Environmental variables measured at the same sites

alpha

Alpha for the biplot decomposition [0,1]. With alpha=1 the emphasis is on the sites and with alpha=0 the emphasis is on the species

dimens

Dimension of the solution

Details

A pair of ecological tables, made of a species abundance matrix and an environmental variables matrix measured at the same sampling sites, is usually analyzed by Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA) (Ter BRAAK, 1986). CCA can be considered as a Correspondence Analysis (CA) in which the ordination axis are constrained to be linear combinations of the environmental variables. Recently the procedure has been extended to other disciplines as Sociology or Psichology and it is potentially useful in many other fields.

Value

A CCA solution object
