phyloregion: R package for biogeographic regionalization and spatial conservation
Biogeographical regionalization is the classification of regions in terms of their biotas and is key to understanding biodiversity patterns across the world. Previously, it was only possible to perform analysis of biogeographic regionalization on small datasets, often using tools that are difficult to replicate.
Here, we present
phyloregion, a package for the analysis of biogeographic regionalization and spatial conservation in the R computing environment, tailored for mega phylogenies and macroecological datasets of ever-increasing size and complexity.
phyloregion is simple, fast, and particularly tailored for handling large datasets.
