Description

To demonstrate the application of the functions for real world data, we used existing data sets on niches and trait-spaces and quantified their sizes and overlaps. The data set finch is a data set on morphological measurements of Darwin finches. The data set comprises quantitative measurements of nine traits characterizing five species of finches, each trait was measured at least in 10 individuals per species.
