R package vegclust
Classifications of vegetation provide a way of summarizing our knowledge of vegetation patterns. They are a necessary tool for nature conservation, landscape mapping and land-use planning. As the basis of vegetation classification is mainly conventional, many methodological options are possible. At least four tasks are necessary in the management of vegetation classifications: (1) Assigning a meaningful vegetation type to the plant community observed in a sampled site; (2) Updating the current definition of vegetation types according to the new vegetation information collected; (3) Defining new vegetation types with those relevés that are considered to be very different to any of the available types; (4) Reviewing classifications generated by other means.
Package vegclust provides set of functions:
- To perform fuzzy clustering of vegetation data De Caceres et al. (2010)
- To assess ecological community ressemblance on the basis of structure and composition De Caceres et al. (2013)
- To perform community trajectory analysis De Caceres et al. (2019).
