intersect_taxa: Returns the intersection of species and samples for the components of x

Description

This function is used internally as part of the infrastructure to ensure that component data types in a phyloseq-object have exactly the same taxa/species. It relies heavily on the Reduce function to determine the strictly common species.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

(Required). A phyloseq-class object that contains 2 or more components that in-turn describe species/taxa.

Value

Returns a character vector of only those species that are present in all species-describing components of x.
