comspat: an R package to analyze within-community spatial organization using species combinations

James Tsakalos, Stefano Chelli, Giandiego Campetella, Roberto Canullo, Enrico Simonetti & Sanyi Bartha
The diversity of species combinations observable in sampling units reflects a species’ uneven distribution and preference for specific abiotic and biotic conditions – a phenomenon most commonly expressed in terms of ecological assembly rules of plant communities and other sessile organisms (e.g., subtidal algae, invertebrates and coral reefs). We present comspat, a new R package that uses grid or transect data sets to measure the number of realized (observed) species combinations (NRC) and the Shannon...
