HierDpart

HierDpart is made for calculating hierarchical diversity and differentiation based on a unifying framework (Gaggiotti,OE et al, 2018), whcih can investigate biological variation across metrixs and scales, from genes to ecosystem.

HierDpart works for calculating and decomposting real diversity (effective numbers qD, q=1,2,3 etc) and new differentiation (DeltaD) for any number of hierarchical levels based on a recently hieacrchical framework( Gaggiotti,OE et al, 2018). but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
