vegclust

Introduction

Package vegclust is a package designed to assist analyses of vegetation structure and composition. It is intended to be useful for community ecologists and forest engineers, but the clustering functions can be used in other fields. The package provides functions to:

  • Perform fuzzy clustering of vegetation data [De Caceres et al. (2010) doi:10.1111/j.1654-1103.2010.01211.x]
  • Assess ecological community ressemblance on the basis of structure and composition [De Caceres et al. (2013) doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12116]
  • Perform community trajectory analysis [De Caceres et al. (2019) doi:10.1002/ecm.1350]

Package installation

Package vegclust can be found at CRAN package repository. In addition, the latest stable vegclust R package can be installed from GitHub as follows:

devtools::install_github("vegmod/vegclust")
