an object of class CommunityCollection.

Details

Returns a data.frame that contains the same statistics presented in Table 1 on Cohen et al 2009 PNAS. The function removes nodes lacking body mass (M) and/or numerical abundance (N), cannibalistic links and isolated nodes from each community. The last eight rows of the table contain four network statistics both with and without these removals.

Value

A data.frame with a column per community and the rows

Mean link length
Mean L upper
Mean L lower
2 x mean link length
Mean 2-span
Mean L upper + L lower
2 x mean link length / mean 2-span
Mean L upper + L lower/ mean 2-span
Mean count chain length
Mean count chain length x mean link length
Community span
Mean count chain length x mean link length / community span
Mean sum chain lengths
Mean chain span
Mean chain span / community span
Mean sum chain lengths / mean chain span
Mean sum chain lengths / community span
L

number of trophic links after removals.

S^2

number of nodes squared after removals.

L/S^2

directed connectance links after removals.

L/S

linkage density after removals.

L

number of trophic links before removals.

S^2

number of nodes squared before removals.

L/S^2

directed connectance links before removals.

L/S

linkage density before removals.
