Details

Package: untb
Type: Package
Version: 1.0
Date: 2005-10-26
License: GPL

Package untb uses two classes of object to represent an ecosystem: class count and class census. In essense, a count object is a table of species abundances and a census object is a list of individuals. See ?census and ?count for more details. Although objects of either class can be coerced to the other, class count is the preferred form: it is a more compact representation, especially for large ecosystems.

The package simulates neutral ecological drift using function untb(). Function display.untb() displays a semi-animated graphic of an ecosystem undergoing neutral drift.
