This package uses a probabilistic method to calculate niche regions and pairwise niche overlap using multidimensional niche indicator data (e.g., stable isotopes, environmental variables, etc.). The niche region is defined as the joint probability density function of the multidimensional niche indicators at a userdefined probability alpha (e.g., 95%). Uncertainty is accounted for in a Bayesian framework, and the method can be extended to three or more indicator dimensions. It provides directional estimates of niche overlap, accounts for speciesspecific distributions in multivariate niche space, and produces unique and consistent bivariate projections of the multivariate niche region. A forthcoming article by Swanson et al. (Ecology, 2014) provides a detailed description of the methodology. See the package vignette for a worked example using fish stable isotope data.
