ChaoSimpson(x, datatype = "abundance", transform = FALSE, conf = 0.95,
  B = 200)

EstSimpson(x, datatype = "abundance", transform = FALSE, conf = 0.95,
  B = 200)

Arguments

x

a vector of species abundances or incidence frequencies. If datatype = "incidence", then the first entry of the input data must be total number of sampling units, followed by species incidence frequencies.

datatype

data type of input data: individual-based abundance data (datatype = "abundance"), sampling-unit-based incidence frequencies data (datatype = "incidence_freq") or species by sampling-units incidence matrix (datatype = "incidence_raw").

transform

a logical constant to compute traditional Gini-Simpson index (transform=FALSE) or the transformed Simpson diversity (transform=TRUE).

conf

a positive number 1 specifying the level of confidence interval.

B

an integer specifying the number of bootstrap replications.

Value

a vector of observed Gini-Simpson index/diversity, index/diversity estimator, s.e. and the associated confidence interval.
