Brownian Motion rate computation

Description

The function computes rate of phenotypic evolution along a phylogeny assuming Brownian Motion model of evolution.

Usage

sig2BM(tree,y)

Arguments

tree

a phylogenetic tree. The tree needs not to be ultrametric and fully dichotomous.

y

either a single vector variable or a multivariate dataset. In any case, y must be named.

Value

The Brownian Motion rate of phenotypic evolution for each variable in y.
