smirnov: Provides two taxonomic coefficients from E. S. Smirnov "Taxonomic analysis" (1969) book
This tiny package contains one function smirnov() which calculates two scaled taxonomic coefficients, Txy (coefficient of similarity) and Txx (coefficient of originality). These two characteristics may be used for the analysis of similarities between any number of taxonomic groups, and also for assessing uniqueness of giving taxon. It is possible to use smirnov() output as a distance measure: convert it to distance by "as.dist(1 - smirnov(x))".
