Calculate Niche Overlap
Calculate the overlap metrics D and I based on two species occurrence density grids z1 and z2 created by
ecospat.niche.overlap (z1, z2, cor)
- Species 1 occurrence density grid created by
- Species 2 occurrence density grid created by
- Correct the occurrence densities of each species by the prevalence of the environments in their range (T = yes, F = no).
if cor=F, the z$uncor objects created by
ecospat.grid.clim are used to calculate the overlap. if cor=T, the z$cor objects are used.
