The package is usefull for generating randomized community matrices under strict range cohesion. The package can handle data where species occurence are recorded across one or two dimentions.One dimentional data are typically for sites ordered along a variable of interest such as elevation or latitude.rangemod1d is used for such data. Two dimentional data have species occurences recorded on grids with known geographic coordinates and are handled with function rangemod2d. Range cohesion is enforced using an 'nb' object (generated by poly2nb of the spdep package).
