# Coefficient of variation, mean, minimum and standard deviation of the nearest neigbourhood distance.

### Description

CVNND : Coefficient of variation of the nearest neigbourhood distance

MNND : Mean of the nearest neigbourhood distance

MinNND : Minimum of the nearest neigbourhood distance

SDNND : Standard deviation of the nearest neigbourhood distance

SDND : Standard deviation of the neigbourhood distance

MND : Mean of the neigbourhood distance

### Usage

CVNND(traits, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")
MNND(traits, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")
MinNND(traits, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")
SDNND(traits, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE, scale.tr = TRUE,
method.dist = "euclidian")
SDND(trait, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE)
MND(trait, div_range = FALSE, na.rm = FALSE)
``` |

### Arguments

`traits` |
Trait vector (uni-trait metric) or traits matrix (Multi-traits metric), traits in column. |

`trait` |
Trait vector |

`div_range` |
Does metric need to be divided by the range? Default is no. |

`na.rm` |
If div_range=TRUE, a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds. |

`scale.tr` |
Does traits need to be scale before multi-traits metric calculation? Default is yes. |

`method.dist` |
Method to calculate the distance in case of multi-traits metric (function dist). Default is euclidian. |

### Value

One value corresponding to the metric value.
