constant rate of compositional change. Usually this is not strictly
possible.

Function `gradscale`

tries to rescale an ecological gradient to
the constant rate of compositional change as measured by
`betadiversity`

. Usually this is not strictly possible,
because the responses fitted after rescaling indicate local
aberrations, although the average change is close to constant.

The function `gradscale`

makes the distance of ordered gradient
points equal to sum of change in species abundance. In most cases,
this is equal to change in fitted values, but if the species has its
optimum between the gradient values, `gradscale`

will estimate
the accumulated change through that optimum point.

The function returns the rescaled gradient at the point given by
`grad`

.
