betadiv: Estimators of Multiple-Site Dissimilarity Indices for the Assessment of Beta Diversity

Implement the multiple-site dissimilarity indices of Simpson, Sorensen and nestedness, which can be used to assess the beta diversity of a population. These indices were adapted from those developed by Baselga (2010) <doi:10.1111/j.1466-8238.2009.00490.x> in order to have them population size-independent. All the details behind the calculation and estimation of these adapted indices can be found in Fortin et al. (2020) <doi:10.1111/geb.13080>.
