phyloregion: Biogeographic Regionalization and Macroecology

Computational infrastructure for biogeography, community ecology, and biodiversity conservation (Daru et al. 2020) <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.13478>. It is based on the methods described in Daru et al. (2020) <doi:10.1038/s41467-020-15921-6>. The original conceptual work is described in Daru et al. (2017) <doi:10.1016/j.tree.2017.08.013> on patterns and processes of biogeographical regionalization. Additionally, the package contains fast and efficient functions to compute more standard conservation measures such as phylogenetic diversity, phylogenetic endemism, evolutionary distinctiveness and global endangerment, as well as compositional turnover (e.g., beta diversity).
