Arguments

FUN

The function to be applied to each value of q.seq. Any function accepting a numeric vector (or a two-column matrix) and a number as first two arguments and an argument named CheckArguments is acceptable (other arguments of the functions are passed by ...). See *Details* for useful entropy and diversity functions and *Examples* for an ad-hoc one.

NorP

A numeric vector. Contains either abundances or probabilities.

q.seq

A numeric vector: the sequence of diversity orders to address. Default is from 0 to 2.

NumberOfSimulations

The number of simulations to run, 0 by default.

Alpha

The risk level, 5% by default.

BootstrapMethod

The method used to obtain the probabilities to generate bootstrapped communities from observed abundances. See rCommunity.

size

The size of simulated communities used to compute the bootstrap confidence envelope. 1 (default) means that the actual size must be used.

x

An object to be tested or plotted or the vector of orders of community profiles in as.CommunityProfile.

y

Entropy or diversity values of each order, corresponding to x values.

low

Entropy or diversity lower bound of the confidence envelope, corresponding to x values.

high

Entropy or diversity higher bound of the confidence envelope, corresponding to x values.

Profile

An CommunityProfile to be plotted.

...

Additional arguments to be passed to FUN in CommunityProfile, to plot in plot.CommunityProfile or to lines in CEnvelope.

main

The main title of the plot.

xlab

The x axis label of the plots.

ylab

The y axis label of the plot.

ylim

The interval of y values plotted.

LineWidth

The width of the line that represents the actual profile.

ShadeColor

The color of the shaded confidence envelope.

BorderColor

The color of the bounds of the confidence envelope.

CheckArguments

Logical; if TRUE, the function arguments are verified. Should be set to FALSE to save time when the arguments have been checked elsewhere.

Details

The function CommunityProfile is used to calculate diversity or entropy profiles based on community functions such as Tsallis or ChaoPD. The first two arguments of the function must be a probability or abundance vector and a number (q). Additional arguments cannot be checked. Unexpected results may be returned if FUN is not used properly.

If NumberOfSimulations is greater than 0, a bootstrap confidence interval is produced by simulating communities with rCommunity and calculating their profiles. The size of those communities may be that of the actual community or specified by size.

CommunityProfile objects can be plotted. They can also be added to the current plot by CEnvelope.

Value

A CommunityProfile, which is a list:

x

The order q values

y

The entropy or diversity values returned by FUN

low

The lower bound of the confidence interval

high

The upper bound of the confidence interval
