FALCON is a package designed to enable the analysis of nestedness and help compare different nestedness measures and associated null models in bipartite networks.
FALCON allows computation of six nestedness measures for binary networks:
- Manhattan Distance
- spectral radius
- nested temperature calculator
- the Johnson et al. nestedness measure
and significance testing under five binary null models: SS, FF, CC, DD and EE
Additionally spectral radius and WNODF measures can be used for the analysis of weighted networks under four weighted null models.
If you use or develop FALCON please let us know - we are interested in knowing how this code is being used!
