chessboard

The package chessboard provides functions to work with directed (asymmetric) and undirected (symmetric) spatial (or non-spatial) networks. It implements different methods to detect neighbors, all based on the chess game (it goes beyond the rook and the queen) to create complex connectivity scenarios.

This work is part of the CESAB working group BRIDGE.

mFD

The mFD package provides a user friendly interface to compute a global assessment of functional diversity by gathering computation of alpha and beta functional indices. As no package before, it guides users through functional analysis with one function per action to complete, several arguments that can be changed and allows personalized graphical outputs.

popbayes

The goal of the R package popbayes is to infer trends of one or several populations over time from series of counts. It does so by accounting for count precision (provided or inferred based on expert knowledge, e.g. guesstimates), smoothing the population rate of increase over time, and accounting for the maximum demographic potential of species. Inference is carried out in a Bayesian framework.
