palaeoSig: Significance Tests for Palaeoenvironmental Reconstructions

Several tests of quantitative palaeoenvironmental reconstructions from microfossil assemblages, including the null model tests of the statistically significant of reconstructions developed by Telford and Birks (2011) <doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2011.03.002>, and tests of the effect of spatial autocorrelation on transfer function model performance using methods from Telford and Birks (2009) <doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2008.12.020> and Trachsel and Telford (2016) <doi:10.5194/cp-12-1215-2016>. Age-depth models with generalized mixed-effect regression from Heegaard et al (2005) <doi:10.1191/0959683605hl836rr> are also included.
