Construct, coerce, and test for a census object
In package untb, ecosystem data is held in one of two preferred forms:
census data and count data. Function
as.census() coerces to
1 2 3
Ecosystem data. In function
A “census” object is a list of individuals in the form of an unnamed vector whose elements indicate the individuals' species; compare “count” objects.
An object of class “census” is also an unordered factor. The levels are always in alphabetical order.
census() takes an object of class “count” and
returns an object of class “census”. This function is not
really intended for the end user.
as.census() coerces to class “count” then
census() of the result.
Returns an object of class “census”.
