`ChaoSpecies`

: Estimation of species richness in a single community based on five types of data:
Type (1) abundance data (datatype="abundance"), Type (1A) abundance-frequency counts

(datatype="abundance_freq_count"), Type (2) incidence-frequency data (datatype =
"incidence_freq"), Type (2A) incidence-frequency counts (datatype="incidence_freq_count"), and
Type (2B) incidence-raw data (datatype="incidence_raw"); see `SpadeR-package`

details for data input formats.

``` |

`data` |
a matrix/data.frame of species abundances/incidences. |

`datatype` |
type of input data, "abundance", "abundance_freq_count", "incidence_freq", "incidence_freq_count" or "incidence_raw". |

`k` |
the cut-off point (default = 10), which separates species into "abundant" and "rare" groups for abundance data for the estimator ACE; it separates species into "frequent" and "infrequent" groups for incidence data for the estimator ICE. |

`conf` |
a positive number |

a list of three objects:

`$Basic_data_information`

and `$Rare_species_group`

/`$Infreq_species_group`

for summarizing data information.

`$Species_table`

for showing a table of various species richness estimates, standard errors, and the associated confidence intervals.

(3) DESCRIPTION OF ESTIMATORS/MODELS:
Homogeneous Model: This model assumes that all species have the same incidence or detection probabilities. See Eq. (3.2) of Lee and Chao (1994) or Eq. (12a) in Chao and Chiu (2016b).
Chao2 (Chao, 1987): This approach uses the frequencies of uniques and duplicates to estimate the number of undetected species; see Chao (1987) or Eq. (11a) in Chao and Chiu (2016b).
Chao2-bc: A bias-corrected form for the Chao2 estimator; see Chao (2005).
iChao2: An improved Chao2 estimator; see Chiu et al. (2014).
ICE (Incidence-based Coverage Estimator): A non-parametric estimator originally proposed by Lee and Chao (1994) in the context of capture-recapture data analysis. The observed species are separated as frequent and infrequent species groups; only data in the infrequent group are used to estimate the number of undetected species. The estimated CV for species in the infrequent group characterizes the degree of heterogeneity among species incidence probabilities. See Eq. (12b) of Chao and Chiu (2016b), which is an improved version of Eq. (3.18) in Lee and Chao (1994). This model is also called Model(h) in capture-recapture literature where h denotes "heterogeneity".
ICE-1: A modified ICE for highly-heterogeneous cases.
1st order jackknife: It uses the frequency of uniques to estimate the number of undetected species; see Burnham and Overton (1978).
2nd order jackknife: It uses the frequencies of uniques and duplicates to estimate the number of undetected species; see Burnham and Overton (1978).
95% Confidence interval: A log-transformation is used for all estimators so that the lower bound of the resulting interval is at least the number of observed species. See Chao (1987).
