primates: Example datasets

Description Usage Format Author(s) Source


primates is an object of class "DNAbin" containing nucleotide sequence data of mysterious origin for 12 species of primates. chloroplast is an object of class"proseq" containing a chloroplast alignment from the phangorn package (Schliep 2011). primates.bin is a an object of class "" containing "0" and "1" character data for primates. cotton is a list with two parts: cotton$tree is an object of class "phylo", containing a phylogenetic tree for 37 species of cotton (Gossypium); cotton$data is an object of class "matrix" containing traits for each species. Most trait values are real, but a few values were not available and so random values were used so there were no missing values in the dataset. is an object of class "" containing an example dataset of restriction site data.




The data are stored as an object of class "DNAbin", "proseq", "", or "". cotton is a list containing an object "phylo" and a matrix of continuous trait data.
