Analysis of ecological networks

The EcologicalNetwork package offers a convenient interface to analyze several types of ecological networks. Rather than providing multiple measures of the same property, we selected measures that have been demonstrated to work and be robust.

You can read more about the selection of measures in:

Delmas, E. et al. Analyzing ecological networks of species interactions. bioRxiv 112540 (2017). doi:10.1101/112540

The structure of this documentation is trying to match (as much as possible) the structure of Delmas et al. (2017), where most of the measures presented here are reviewed.

This package also offers an interface for probabilistic network, about which you can read more in:

Poisot, T. et al. The structure of probabilistic networks. Methods in Ecology and Evolution 7, 303–312 (2016). doi: 10.1111/2041-210X.12468
