RInSp: R Individual Specialization

Functions to calculate several ecological indices of individual and population niche width (Araujo's E, clustering and pairwise similarity among individuals, IS, Petraitis' W, and Roughgarden's WIC/TNW) to assess individual specialization based on data of resource use. Resource use can be quantified by counts of categories, measures of mass or length, or proportions. Monte Carlo resampling procedures are available for hypothesis testing against multinomial null models. Details are provided in Zaccarelli et al. (2013) <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12079> and associated references.
