**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

32
**Making Effective Use of Environmental Variables**

33
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

34
**Ordination Constrained by the Environmental Variables**

35
Constrained?

36
**Working with the Variability that we Can Explain**

Start with all the variability in the response variables. Replace the original observations with their fitted values from a model employing the environmental variables as explanatory variables (discarding the residual variability). Carry our gradient analysis on the fitted values.

37
**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.

38
**Dune Data Unconstrained**

39
**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

40
**Direct Gradient Analysis**

Basic PCA yik = b0k + b1kxi + eik xi - the sample scores on the ordination axis b1k - the regression coefficients for each species (the species scores on the ordination axis) In RDA there is a further constraint on xi xi = c1zi1 + c2zi2 Making yik = b0k + b1kc1zi1 + b1kc2zi2 + eik

**Modelling Environmental Variables**

48
**Ways of Building Models**

Automated environmental variable selection (stepwise addition or removal of variables from the model – as with multiple regression) mod0 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ 1, nasser.watervar) mod1 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ ., nasser.watervar) op <- options(digits=7) mod <- step(mod0, scope=formula(mod1)) options(op) mod plot(mod)

49
**Ways of Building Models**

Manual selection of environmental variables using prior knowledge (e.g. example starting with full model and removing terms) mod1 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ ., nasser.watervar) mod2 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ . -WMg, nasser.watervar) mod3 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ . -WMg -WEC, nasser.watervar) mod4 <- cca(nasser.inverts ~ . -WMg -WEC -WCa, nasser.watervar)

50
**Ways of Evaluating Models**

Graphically using Procrustes Rotation plot(procrustes(mod2, mod1)) plot(procrustes(mod3, mod2)) plot(procrustes(mod4, mod3)) plot(procrustes(mod4, mod1))

51
Procrustes

52
**Ways of Evaluating Models**

Permutation Tests can be used to assess adequacy of the models using a Pseudo ANOVA or Permutest anova(mod1) anova(mod2) anova(mod3) anova(mod4) permutest.cca(mod1, perm=1000) permutest.cca(mod2, perm=1000) permutest.cca(mod3, perm=1000) permutest.cca(mod4, perm=1000)

53
**Removing the Effect of Nuisance Variables**

54
**Getting rid of the Variability that is Not of Interest**

Amongst the explanatory variables there may be variability attributable to: Blocks and other design strata Covariates that we can measure but are not the focus of interest We may want to use only the variability attributable to: Meaningful Environmental Variables

55
**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

65
**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

66
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.

67
**Distance metrics relevant for continuous variables:**

Euclidean city block or Manhattan A B A B (also many other variations)

74
**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 0,1 1,1 0,0 1,0 0,1 1,1 0,0 1,0

75
**Clustering methods hierarchical non-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

76
**Agglomerative hierarchical**

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

77
**Agglomerative hierarchical**

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

78
**Agglomerative hierarchical**

**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.
