dominance | R Documentation |

The tree attribute dominance was proposed by Hui et al. (1998) to relate the relative dominance of a given tree to its species or silvicultural significance. It is defined as the proportion of the n nearest neighbours of a given reference tree which are bigger than the reference tree.

```
dominance(x)
```

`x` |
A vector composed by 5 tree attributes, such as dbh,biomass. |

Result will retrun five values,0,0.25,0.5,0.75,1,which means the propertion of the larger tree attributes in the 4 nearest neighbours than the reference tree.
