OUwie.dredge | R Documentation |

Allows the hypothesis free detection of shifts in the OU process. The number and location of shifts is estimated using a user-specified information criterion.

OUwie.dredge(phy, data, criterion=c("AIC", "AICc", "BIC", "mBIC"), shift.max=3, sigma.sq.max.k=3, alpha.max.k=3, root.age=NULL, scaleHeight=FALSE, root.station=FALSE, shift.point=0.5, mserr="none", algorithm=c("invert", "three.point"), opts = list("algorithm"="NLOPT_LN_SBPLX", "maxeval"="1000", "ftol_rel"=.Machine$double.eps^0.5))

`phy` |
a phylogenetic tree, in |

`data` |
a dataframe containing two columns, taxon names in the first column, and species trait information in the second column. |

`criterion` |
information criterion to use for shift detection. |

`shift.max` |
maximum allowed number of shifts. |

`sigma.sq.max.k` |
maximum allowed number of sigma.sq parameters. |

`alpha.max.k` |
maximum allowed number of alpha parameters. |

`root.age` |
indicates the age of the tree. This is to be used in cases where the "tips" are not contemporary, such as in cases for fossil trees. Default is |

`scaleHeight` |
a logical indicating whether the total tree height should be scaled to 1. The default is |

`root.station` |
a logical indicating whether the starting state, |

`shift.point` |
the point along a branch where a regime change is assumed to have occurred (if |

`algorithm` |
designates whether the standard matrix inversion ('invert') or the faster 'three-point' algorithm of Ho and Ane (2013) should be used. |

`mserr` |
designates whether a fourth column in the data matrix contains measurement error for each species value ("known"). The measurement error is assumed to be the standard error of the species mean. The default is "none". |

`opts` |
a list of options to pass to nloptr for the optimization: useful to adjust for faster, coarser searches |

This is an expanded version of the shift point model of Ho and Ane (2014). This is currently being tested, but as of now we strongly recommend using the mBIC criterion when searching for shifts.
