Description Details Index Author(s) References


TreeAndLeaf package comes as an alternative to solve problems regarding dendrogram plotting, such as the lack of space when the dendrogram is too large and the need for adding more layers of information. It treats a whole dendrogram as a tree, in which the observations are represented by the leaves.
