To further investigate differences in community composition between latrine and control sites, we conducted Nonmetric
Multi-Dimensional Scaling (NMDS) analysis and produced associated plots for visitation rates of both mammals and carnivores based on a Bray-Curtis dissimilarity distance matrix (Bray and Curtis, 1957; Hall et al, 2016).
These results were supported by the nonmetric
multidimensional scaling (NMDS) analysis, which produced a good fit (0.185 stress) with a clear positive linear relationship between the observed dissimilarity and the ordination distances (for linear fit: r2 = 0.835; Fig.
He is currently working on a book-length manuscript on metric and nonmetric
as a new pair of fundamental concepts in sociology (accepted for publication with Palgrave-Macmillan).
The aim of this research project was to standardize the approach used when examining postcranial nonmetric
traits to ensure robust analytical reliability.
MDS relates to making graphs that describe the position of an object with other objects based on similarity, the data used is nonmetric
data (nominal and ordinal) and data netrik (interval and ratio) (Santoso and Tjiptono, 2002) while the data nature, data collected and can be processed with MDS must be compiled by comparison data.
To evaluate seasonal and annual variability in the species numerical composition of late-larval and juvenile rockfish sampled for this study, nonmetric
multidimensional scaling (NMS) was used to ordinate rockfish samples (densities of fish identified in the laboratory by visual means and proportions of rockfish identified on the basis of genetics) in n-dimensional space.
Aioarchaeological analysis of cultural transition in the southern levant using dental nonmetric
Sex determination using nonmetric
characteristics of the mandible in Koreans.
Differences in bacterial OTU composition between treatments were analyzed with a nonmetric
multidimensional scaling plot, one-way analysis of similarities (ANOSIM) and similarity percentage (SIMPER) analyses using PAST statistical software (Hammer et al.
To explore differences in species compositions among the four habitats, we subjected all daily data and the pooled data from the six samplings to nonmetric
multidimensional scaling (NMDS).

multidimensional scaling (nMDS) was conducted to generate the two-dimensional plots of the antennular parameters between barnacle species.
