graphic: The analysis of community data is a process involving many steps, an
example of only a few of which are portrayed here from top left to bottom right.
- Samples: The multivariate community data analysis pathway begins with
field observations from different samples.
- Matrix: Based on these observations, a square distance matrix is
computed to assess the dissimilarity of sample units to one another.
- Flowchart: A decision is made to select the most appropriate analysis
tool to address the stated analysis objective: in this case, the group-testing tool MRPP.
- Analysis: MRPP calculates within-group distances for comparison to
random assignments to groups.
