Mielke, Jr. and colleagues at Colorado State University and for testing parameters estimated in linear models with permutation procedures developed by B. S. Cade and colleagues at the Fort Collins Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey. This implementation in R has allowed for numerous improvements not supported by the Cade and Richards Fortran implementation, including use of categorical predictor variables in most routines. Statistical procedures available include: A permutation testing version of ordinary least squares (OLS) regression that parallels the least absolute deviation (LAD) and quantile [...]
