Format

A list containing five elements:

method

Name of the test.

species

Names of the two species compared.

statistic

Test statistics D and I of niche overlap based on Schoeners D and modified Hellinger distances.

p.value

p-values for the test statistics (if method = "niche equivalency test").

null

Formulation of the null hypothesis.

null.distribution

Null distributions of D and I derived from randomization (if method = "niche equivalency test").

ci.x.randomY

Confidence intervals based on null distributions (if method = "background similarity test").

ci.y.randomX

Confidence intervals based on null distributions (if method = "background similarity test").

nd.x.randomY

Null distributions of D and I derived from randomization (if method = "background similarity test").

nd.y.randomX
