Ordination Techniques Linear methodsWeighted averaging unconstrainedPrincipal Components Analysis (PCA) Correspondence Analysis (CA) constrainedRedundancy Analysis (RDA) Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA)

Models of Species Response There are (at least) two models:- Linear - species increase or decrease along the environmental gradient Unimodal - species rise to a peak somewhere along the environmental gradient and then fall again

A Theoretical Model

Linear

Unimodal

Alpha and Beta Diversity alpha diversity is the diversity of a community (either measured in terms of a diversity index or species richness) beta diversity (also known as species turnover or differentiation diversity) is the rate of change in species composition from one community to another along gradients; gamma diversity is the diversity of a region or a landscape.

Inferring Gradients from Species (or Attribute) Data

Indirect Gradient Analysis Environmental gradients are inferred from species data alone Three methods: –Principal Component Analysis - linear model –Correspondence Analysis - unimodal model –Detrended CA - modified unimodal model

PCA - linear model

Terschelling Dune Data

PCA gradient - site/species biplot standard nature biodynamic & hobby

Arches - Artifact or Feature?

The Arch Effect What is it? Why does it happen? What should we do about it?

From Alexandria to Suez

CA - with arch effect (sites)

CA - with arch effect (species)

CA - with arch effect (species)

CA - with arch effect (sites)

Detrending by Segments

DCA - modified unimodal

Making Effective Use of Environmental Variables

Approaches Use single responses in linear models of environmental variables Use axes of a multivariate dimension reduction technique as responses in linear models of environmental variables Constrain the multivariate dimension reduction into the factor space defined by the environmental variables

Unconstrained/Constrained Unconstrained ordination axes correspond to the directions of the greatest variability within the data set. Constrained ordination axes correspond to the directions of the greatest variability of the data set that can be explained by the environmental variables.

Direct Gradient Analysis Environmental gradients are constructed from the relationship between species environmental variables Three methods: –Redundancy Analysis - linear model –Canonical (or Constrained) Correspondence Analysis - unimodal model –Detrended CCA - modified unimodal model

Direct Gradient Analysis Basic PCA y ik = b 0k + b 1k x i + e ik –x i - the sample scores on the ordination axis –b 1k - the regression coefficients for each species (the species scores on the ordination axis) In RDA there is a further constraint on x i x i = c 1 z i1 + c 2 z i2 Making y ik = b 0k + b 1k c 1 z i1 + b 1k c 2 z i2 + e ik

Direct Gradient Analysis cca(species_data ~ e1 + e2 +... + en + Condition(e5), data=environmental_data) cca(varespec ~ Al + P*(K + Baresoil) + Condition(pH), data=varechem)

CCA - site/species joint plot

CCA - species/environment biplot

Removing the Effect of Nuisance Variables

Partial Analyses Remove the effect of covariates –variables that we can measure but which are of no interest –e.g. block effects, start values, etc. Carry out the gradient analysis on what is left of the variation after removing the effect of the covariates.

Cluster Analysis

Different types of data example Continuous data:height Categorical data ordered (nominal):growth rate very slow, slow, medium, fast, very fast not ordered:fruit colour yellow, green, purple, red, orange Binary data:fruit / no fruit

Similarity matrix We define a similarity between units – like the correlation between continuous variables. (also can be a dissimilarity or distance matrix) A similarity can be constructed as an average of the similarities between the units on each variable. (can use weighted average) This provides a way of combining different types of variables.

relevant for continuous variables: Euclidean city block or Manhattan Distance metrics A B A B (also many other variations)

Similarity coefficients for binary data simple matching count if both units 0 or both units 1 Jaccard count only if both units 1 (also many other variants) simple matching can be extended to categorical data 0,11,1 0,01,0 0,11,1 0,01,0

hierarchical divisive put everything together and split monothetic / polythetic agglomerative keep everything separate and join the most similar points (classical cluster analysis) non-hierarchical k-means clustering Clustering methods

Agglomerative hierarchical Single linkage or nearest neighbour finds the minimum spanning tree: shortest tree that connects all points chaining can be a problem

Agglomerative hierarchical Complete linkage or furthest neighbour compact clusters of approximately equal size. (makes compact groups even when none exist)

Testing Significance in Ordination

Randomisation Tests
