A new conceptual and methodological framework for exploring and explaining pattern in presence – absence data
TLDR
A conceptual framework is proposed to evaluate the relative importance of beta diversity, nestedness and agreement in species richness in presence – absence data matrices via partitioning pairwise gamma diversity into additive components using a two-dimensional simplex diagram, or ternary plot.

SYN-TAX IV. Computer Programs for Data Analysis in Ecology and Systematics
This new release of the package contains 27 FORTRAN and 4 BASIC programs written for IBM-PC and compatible machines and Apple Macintosh II, Plus and SE personal computers. Widely used standardExpand
RANDOMIZATION OF PRESENCE–ABSENCE MATRICES: COMMENTS AND NEW ALGORITHMS
Randomization of presence–absence data matrices with fixed row and column totals is an important tool in ecological research wherever the significance of data-based statistics (e.g., speciesExpand
Extending Gower's general coefficient of similarity to ordinal characters
TLDR
The possibilities of calculating similarity based on ordinal characters are evaluated by distinguishing subtypes of the ordinal scale by extending Gower's general coefficient of similarity to ordinal data types, facilitating cluster analysis and multidimensional scaling. Expand
Contribution of habitat patches to network connectivity: Redundancy and uniqueness of topological indices
In order to increase the efficiency of monitoring and conservation efforts, it is of key importance to develop sound quantitative methods that are able to indicate which key areas and landscapeExpand
Braun-Blanquet's legacy and data analysis in vegetation science
Abstract This article investigates whether the Braun-Blanquet abundance/dominance (AD) scores that commonly appear in phytosociological tables can properly be analysed by conventional multivariateExpand
On dendrogram-based measures of functional diversity
Euclidean distance is commonly involved in calculating functional diversity (FD), for example, in measures based on dendrogram branch lengths. We point out that this function is inappropriate in manyExpand
