Hi Maura,

> Is there any R package which implements non-linear dimensionality reduction (LLE, ISOMAP, GTM, and so on)  and/or intrinsic dimensionality estimation ?

I am not exactly sure what is meant by non-linear dimensionality
reduction but there is an isomap function in vegan. This is the isomap
of Tenenbaum et al. 2000 and De'ath 1999.


De'ath, G. (1999) Extended dissimilarity: a method of robust
estimation of ecological distances from high beta diversity data.
Plant Ecology 144, 191–199

Tenenbaum, J.B., de Silva, V. & Langford, J.C. (2000) A global network
framework for nonlinear dimensionality reduction. Science 290,

Hope this helps,
