#' @description The Sørensen-type turnover-complement is the complement of the Sørensen-type turnover, which quantifies the normalized OTU turnover rate with respect to the average subsystem (i.e., alpha), thus provides the proportion of a typical subsystem that changes across subsystems. VqN is integrated in the functions beta_dis() and pair_dis().
#' @param beta A beta diversity value based on Hill numbers.
#' @param N An integer indicating sample size, the number of sampling units to be used to compute the similarity measure.
#' @return A Sørensen-type turnover-complement value
