Parameters for chorotype mapping

Share:

Description

This function provides ways for chorotype mapping. For each locality (rows in data), values of four parameters are given. Pi: Presence of chorotype i (presence/absence of at least one species of the chorotypical cluster); SRi: Species Richness of chorotype i (number of species of the chorotypical cluster); MMDi: Maximum Membership Degree-of any species-in chorotype i (fuzzy version of Pi); FSRi: Fuzzy Species Richness (fuzzy version of SRi, i.e sum of all species' degrees of membership in chorotype i).

Usage

1
locCorot(macoquires)

Arguments

macoquires

object resulting from function macoqui

Details

Before applying locCorot, macoqui must be run, and outputs stored as object 'macoquires'.

For locCorot to be run, function macoqui must be executed with a presences/absences data set.

Value

This function returns (invisibly) the macoquires input list with one added element, which is also shown in the console:

locCorotipos

locality identification (correlative numbers starting in 1 are given to lines in data); Pi, SRi, MMDi and FSRi values of every chorotype i in each locality

Note

This function can take some computing time.
