We compare seven multivariate methods suitable to determine the functional response of species to environmental change. The selection of the most appropriate method depends on the research question, i.e. the response of average trait expressions of communities, the coexistence of different life histories or the response of functional groups. R-scripts and a tutorial for each method are available in the Appendix.
