fast.SSC: Fast Phylogenetic Signal Using Sum of Squared Changes (SSC)

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

View source: R/phylopars_update.R

Description

This function uses a fast ancestral state reconstruction algorithm (anc.recon, Goolsby, In review) to calculate the sum of squared changes bewteen ancestral and descendant nodes/tips, as described in Klingenberg and Gidaszewski (2010). Significance is assessed via phylogenetic permutation.

Usage

1
fast.SSC(trait_data, tree, niter = 1000)

Arguments

trait_data

A vector or matrix of trait values. Names or row names correspond to species names. Data cannot have any missing data or within-species variation.

tree

An object of class phylo.

niter

Number of iterations for hypothesis testing (default=1000).

Value

pvalue

Description of 'comp1'

scaled.SSC

Scaled sum of squared changes. A value less than 1 indicates less phylogenetic signal as measured by SSC than expected under Brownian motion, and a value greater than 1 indicates greater phylogenetic signal as measured by SSC than expected under Brownian motion.

SSC

Total sum of squared changes (SSC)
