Description

Various null models for randomizing community data matrices

Usage

1
2
randomizeMatrix(samp, null.model = c("frequency", "richness",
    "independentswap", "trialswap"), iterations = 1000)    

Arguments

samp

Community data matrix

null.model

Null model to use (see Details section for description)

iterations

Number of independent or trial-swaps to perform

Details

Currently implemented null models (arguments to null.model):

frequency

Randomize community data matrix abundances within species (maintains species occurence frequency)

richness

Randomize community data matrix abundances within samples (maintains sample species richness)

independentswap

Randomize community data matrix with the independent swap algorithm (Gotelli 2000) maintaining species occurrence frequency and sample species richness

trialswap

Randomize community data matrix with the trial-swap algorithm (Miklos & Podani 2004) maintaining species occurrence frequency and sample species richness

Value

Randomized community data matrix
