wlrm_transformed.Rd
This function implements the transformed version of the species richness estimation procedure outlined in Rocchetti, Bunge and Bohning (2011).
wlrm_transformed( input_data, cutoff = NA, print = NULL, plot = NULL, answers = NULL )
input_data  An input type that can be processed by 

cutoff  Maximum frequency count to use 
Deprecated; only for backwards compatibility 

plot  Deprecated; only for backwards compatibility 
answers  Deprecated; only for backwards compatibility 
An object of class alpha_estimate
, or alpha_estimates
for phyloseq
objects
While robust to many different structures, model is almost always misspecified. The result is usually implausible diversity estimates with artificially low standard errors. Extreme caution is advised.
