Measuring functional diversity (FD) from multiple traits, and other tools for functional ecology.


FD is a package to compute different multidimensional FD indices. It implements a distance-based framework to measure FD that allows any number and type of functional traits, and can also consider species relative abundances. It also contains other useful tools for functional ecology.
