A collection of tools in
R to represent and analyse trophic networks in space across aggregation levels. The package contains a layout algorithm specifically designed for trophic networks, using trophic levels and dimension reduction on a diffusion kernel.
For the last stable version, use the CRAN version
For the development version, use the github install
Loading ‘igraph’ is also strongly recommended since ‘metanetwork’ objects are built from ‘igraph’ objects
In ecological networks literature, metanetwork refers to a set of networks in space. In R package ‘metanetwork’, we stick to a widespread (however restrictive) case:
Additional information might be considered (and used in ‘metanetwork’) as:
See vignettes for application of ‘metanetwork’ on several datasets.
This package is currently developed by Marc Ohlmann from Laboratoire d’Ecologie Alpine, Grenoble and Jimmy Garnier and Laurent Vuillon from Laboratoire de Mathématiques, Chambéry. It is supported by the ANR Globnets and ANR Econet.
