The simplest ROPES example

For an introduction of ROPES at the EPPC2018 in Dublin, I used this spreadsheat table (ROPES and how it works) with a very simple example of a ROPES application. The example has just two taxa, A and B, and two samples. Cover is first translated into pollen data (PARs and counts) and then again into cover with REVEALS (using some simplications). Playing with the PPEs (that of B could be used as the reference) shows the principle of ROPES – changes in the reconstructed cover should be similar to changes in the PARs.

      This is the simplest possible example, hopefully suited to understand the principle of ROPES. In reality, of course, data sets with many samples are needed.
