-Apart to //sample × species// matrix of species composition (**L** matrix), and optionally ​also //sample × environmental variable// matrix of environmental variables or other types of sample attributes (**R** matrix), in some cases we have also the third matrix, which contains species attributes like species traits or species indicator values (//species × traits matrix// or **Q** matrix). There are several methods ​of **[[traits|analysis ​of species attributes]]**, including three-matrix methods (like the //fourth corner// or RLQ analysis)or other ways of relating species and sample attributes (e.g. by calculating a community-weighted mean of species attributes for individual samples and relating them to environmental variables by regression).+**[[traits|Analysis of species attributes]]** comes into question when, apart to //sample × species// matrix of species composition (**L** matrix), and (optionally//sample × environmental variable// matrix of environmental variables or other types of sample attributes (**R** matrix), in some cases we have also the third matrix, which contains species attributes like species traits or species indicator values (//species × traits matrix// or **Q** matrix).

-**[[diversity_analysis|Diversity analysis]]** is in certain sense also analysis of species composition matrix, whose originally multidimensional information stored in samples × species matrix is reduced into one-dimensional variables (like numbers of species in samples - alpha diversity, differences in species composition among samples - beta diversity, or number of all species in the matrix - gamma diversity). But diversity is not only about numbers of species, but also about their relative abundances - we will briefly review also the concepts of true diversity, evenness and their representation by different diversity indices. Diversity is also influenced by sampled area (species-area curve) and sampling effort (bias due to undersampling).+**[[diversity_analysis|Diversity analysis]]** is in certain sense also analysis of species composition matrix, whose originally multidimensional information stored in samples × species matrix is reduced into one-dimensional variables (like numbers of species in samples - alpha diversity, differences in species composition among samples - beta diversity, or number of all species in the matrix - gamma diversity).
