preseqR: Predicting the Number of Species in a Random Sample
Version 3.1.2

The relation between the number of species and the number of individuals in a random sample is a classic problem back to Fisher (1943) . We generalize this problem to estimate the number of species represented at least r times in a random sample. In particular when r=1, it becomes the classic problem. We use a mixture of Poisson processes to model sampling procedures and apply a nonparametric empirical Bayes approach to obtain an estimator. For more information on 'preseqR', see Deng C, Daley T and Smith AD (2015) and Deng C and Smith AD (2016) .
