[R] Nested model and variance partitioning

Dear R users,

I face to a nested pattern and despite the numerous examples in the help I am still confused.   

I sampled bugs in different habitats within sites which were within rivers themselves within different regions.    

The habitat correspond to different substrata (not systematically present in all sites). For rivers and sites, I have environemental variables (e.g. altitude and slope of the site, drainage area and geology of the river) and I have only 2 regions. Note that sometimes I have only one site per river.

I would like to know the part of each spatial scale in the species richness variance.  

I looked into the nlme package but I did not found how to proceed...

Thanks for your help
