A package to analyze long-term ecological community datasets.
Univariate and multivariate temporal and spatial diversity indices, rank abundance curves, and community stability metrics. The functions implement metrics that are either explicitly temporal and include the option to calculate them over multiple replicates, or spatial and include the option to calculate them over multiple time points. Functions fall into five categories: static diversity indices, temporal diversity indices, spatial diversity indices, rank abundance curves, and community stability metrics. The diversity indices are temporal and spatial analogs to traditional diversity indices. Specifically, the package includes functions to calculate community richness, evenness and diversity at a given point in space and time. In addition, it contains functions to calculate species turnover, mean rank shifts, and lags in community similarity between two time points.

From CRAN, the package can be installed using standard tools:
To simplify the process of running
R CMD check on the
package, one can easily run the build and tests using the
rhub package. Use
rhub::platforms() to get a list of platforms that can be
used to build and test.
<- check(platform = c("debian-gcc-devel", "fedora-gcc-devel"), show_status = FALSE)chks
and the checks can be run locally using rhub as well using a docker container:
Work on this package was supported by NSF-ABI grant #1262458 to C. Gries, M. Jones, and S. Collins. Additional support was provided for working group collaboration by the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, a Center funded by the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the State of California, and a SESYNC Synthesis Postdoctoral Fellowship to MLA.
