Community Similarity


Nonmetric multidimensional scaling (NMDS)

NMDS is used in ecology to look at similarity in community structure over time or space. Here we show the first two axes of NMDS between sampling events, estimated with Bray-Curtis distance.

Trace of community structure over time (NMDS)

Use the legend to select individual bays or a mean of bays. Missing points represent sampling events when the bay was dry.

Air temperature for selected Bay(s)

Click and drag to constrain the NMDS plot to the selected time span. Missing Temperature values indicate periods when the selected bay was dry.
