Data-driven models for regional coral-reef dynamics

Zychaluk et al (Ecology Letters, accepted). The definitive version is available here.
Supporting Information
We use local linear estimation to fit semi-parametric models to multiple short time series of cover of each of three components: hard corals, macroalgae, and everything else ('others').


Download and unzip this Matlab code (creates directory coralsimplex_distribution). Change to this directory, start Matlab (requires the curve-fitting, optimization and statistics toolboxes), and type example_script to run an example.

See README.txt in the zip file for more information.
