diffval: Vegetation Patterns

Find, visualize and explore patterns of differential taxa in vegetation data (namely in a phytosociological table), using the Differential Value (DiffVal). Patterns are searched through mathematical optimization algorithms. Ultimately, Total Differential Value (TDV) optimization aims at obtaining classifications of vegetation data based on differential taxa, as in the traditional geobotanical approach.

subselect: Selecting Variable Subsets

A collection of functions which (i) assess the quality of variable subsets as surrogates for a full data set, in either an exploratory data analysis or in the context of a multivariate linear model, and (ii) search for subsets which are optimal under various criteria.
