Numerical simulations, and visualizations, of the unified neutral theory of biodiversity
untb uses two classes of object to represent an
count and class
census. In essense, a
count object is a table of species abundances and a
object is a list of individuals. See
for more details. Although objects of either class can be coerced to
the other, class
count is the preferred form: it is a more
compact representation, especially for large ecosystems.
The package simulates neutral ecological drift using function
display.untb() displays a semi-animated
graphic of an ecosystem undergoing neutral drift.
