Convert cover scales to percent coverSource:
Convert values of a categorical cover scale to percentage values.
This function requires as input a coverconvert object which contains the conversion tables.
In the case of vegtable objects, the conversion is already embedded
in the slot
Three rules are implemented for transformation, either
transformed to the top of the range),
middle (transformation at the
bottom (conversion at the lowest value of the
range). In the later case, transformation ranges starting at 0% of cover
can be set to a different value by the argument
replace=FALSE, existing values of cover in the vegtable
object will be maintained. Since there is not a standard naming of cover
values, in the transformation the name of cover variable should be
indicated in the argument
Further arguments passed from or to other methods.
