Within-group synchrony for heteroscedastic compound symmetry mixed models


The function calculates for each varGroup stratum the synchrony (a^) and standard error (SE) for heteroscedastic compound symmetry models (mHeCS).


cswi.het.aSE (model)



a class "lme" model produced by dendro.varcov with homoscedastic equals FALSE.


The function calculates the within-group synchrony values for each varGroup stratum based on the metodology described in Shestakova et al. (2014) and Shestakova et al. (2016). Note that this function is designed to work only in heteroscedastic compound symmetry mixed models (i.e. mHeCS).


The function returns a matrix containing within-group synchrony and SE for each level of varGroup. This function is used internally in sync.

## Calculate within-group heterosdecastic synchrony and SE for conifersIP data:
 #Fit the heteroscedastic set of varcov models (mBE, mHeNE, mHeCS, mHeUN)
 # using taxonomic grouping criteria (i.e. Species)
 ModHt <- dendro.varcov(TRW ~ Code, varTime = "Year", varGroup = "Species", 
                        data = conifersIP, homoscedastic = FALSE)
 #Obtain the heteroscedastic compound symmetry 
 #within-group synchrony and SE for each varGroup stratum.
