This new version corrects a bug reported by Sarah Berke that prevented sing.sp from being calculated correctly in dbFD().
The new version 1.0-7 is now available on R-Forge. Additions are maxent.test() which implements the permutation tests of Shipley (2010; Ecology) for maximum entropy (maxent) models. This makes it easy to now test a model generated by maxent().
I've tweaked Bill Shipley's FORTRAN routine to speed up maxent() substantially. It's about 10 times faster than the previous version, which used only R code for the while loop, which was the real bottleneck in terms of speed. Comments welcome!
The maximum entropy (maxent) model of trait-based community assembly proposed by Bill Shipley is now on FD. Thanks to Dr Shipley for contributing his R code.
I've added the FD package version 1.0-1 today on R-Forge.
