simboot: Simultaneous inference for diversity indices
Package simboot provides estimation of simultaneous
bootstrap and asymptotic confidence intervals for diversity
indices, namely the Shannon and the Simpson index. Several
pre–specified multiple comparison types are available to
choose. Further user–defined contrast matrices are applicable.
In addition, simboot estimates adjusted as well as unadjusted
p–values for two of the three proposed bootstrap methods.
Further simboot allows for comparing biological diversities of
two or more groups while simultaneously testing a user-defined
selection of Hill numbers of orders q, which are considered as
appropriate and useful indices for measuring diversity.
