By Louis Legendre

From prior ecological reviews it has develop into obvious that easy univariate or bivariate facts are frequently beside the point, and that multivariate statistical analyses has to be utilized. regardless of a number of problems bobbing up from the appliance of multivariate equipment, group ecology has bought a mathematical framework, with 3 results: it will probably strengthen as an actual technological know-how; it may be utilized operationally as a computer-assisted technological know-how to the answer of environmental difficulties; and it could actually trade details with different disciplines utilizing the language of arithmetic. This publication contains the invited lectures, in addition to operating staff experiences, at the NATO workshop held in Roscoff (France) to enhance the applicability of this new technique numerical ecology to express ecological problems.

The elements mij form symmetric matrix M and the elements nij form a skew-symmetric matrix N. a The symmetric matrix M may usefully be analysed by any of the ordination methods already discussed. Gower (1977) discusses the application of the Eckart-Young theorem to give a least-squares analysis of a skew-symmetric matrix N. Details will not be given here (see Constantine and Gower 1978, 1982 for applications). Suffice it to say that N may be represented as a set of points in a set of planes (sometimes referred to as bimensions).

With skew-symmetry it is the area of the triangle OPiP j that gives the approximation. parallel to OPi. The locus of Pj that keeps area constant is a line through Pj Zero areas are given by all the points on OPi. The axes may be scaled as for inner-products and negative skew symmetry is given by the locus parallel to OPj, equidistant but on the opposite side to Pj.

Thus the total score for every sample is p and the column totals of G give the number of occurrences of each level of each categorical variable. Table 9 illustrates an indicator matrix G for five samples and three categorical variables with 2, 4 and 3 levels respectively.
