Combining the fourth-corner and the RLQ methods for assessing trait responses to environmental variation.
Assessing trait responses to environmental gradients requires the simultaneous analysis of the information contained in three tables: L (species distribution across samples), R (environmentalExpand

From dissimilarities among species to dissimilarities among communities: a double principal coordinate analysis.
This paper presents a new ordination method to compare several communities containing species that differ according to their taxonomic, morphological or biological features. The objective is first toExpand

On the challenge of treating various types of variables: application for improving the measurement of functional diversity
Functional diversity is at the heart of current research in the field of conservation biology. Most of the indices that measure diversity depend on variables that have various statistical types (e.g.Expand

A guide for using functional diversity indices to reveal changes in assembly processes along ecological gradients
Question Which functional diversity indices have the power to reveal changes in community assembly processes along abiotic stress gradients? Is their power affected by stochastic processes andExpand

Is the originality of a species measurable
In this paper, we introduce the concept of ‘originality of a species within a set’ in order to indicate the average rarity of all the features belonging to this species. Using a phylogenetic tree ofExpand
