Oribatid mite

Description

This data set contains informations about environmental control and spatial structure in ecological communities of Oribatid mites.

Usage

data(oribatid)

Format

oribatid is a list containing the following objects :

fau
: a data frame with 70 rows (sites) and 35 columns (Oribatid species)
envir
: a data frame with 70 rows (sites) and 5 columns (environmental variables)
xy
: a data frame that contains spatial coordinates of the 70 sites

Details

Variables of oribatid$envir are the following ones :
substrate: a factor with seven levels that describes the nature of the substratum
shrubs: a factor with three levels that describes the absence/presence of shrubs
topo: a factor with two levels that describes the microtopography
density: substratum density (g.L^-1)
water: water content of the substratum (g.L^-1)

Examples

data(oribatid)
ori.xy <- oribatid$xy[,c(2,1)]
names(ori.xy) <- c("x","y")
plot(ori.xy,pch = 20, cex = 2, asp = 1)

if (require(deldir, quiet = TRUE)) {
  if (require(spdep, quiet = TRUE)) {
    plot(deldir(ori.xy), add = TRUE)
    s.label(ori.xy, add.p = TRUE,
     neig = nb2neig(knn2nb(knearneigh(as.matrix(ori.xy), 3))),
     clab = 0)
