A toolbox of ecological community dynamics metrics that are explicitly temporal. Functions fall into two categories: temporal diversity indices and community stability metrics. The diversity indices are temporal analogs to traditional diversity indices such as richness and rank-abundance curves. Specifically, functions are provided to calculate species turnover, mean rank shifts, and lags in community similarity between time points. The community stability metrics calculate overall stability and patterns of species covariance and synchrony over time.
