Do all implemented analyses, write tables and figures.

Description

The TRADER package provides only one way for disturbance reconstruction from tree-ring data. TRADER is a unique package bringing the first instrument for analysis of forest disturbance history in complementary ways. Final advantage of TRADER is the possibility of results comparison between individual studies. This is enabled by easy parameter changes in data processing, as well as by clearly arranged graphical and tabular outputs. We developed TRADER in open source R environment, to further support the on-going open-source software development for dendrochronological methods and data availability.

Arguments

data

A data.frame with series as columns and years as rows such as that produced by read.* function of dplR .

m1

Determines the number of years to be averaged (including target year) for period prior the potential releas.

m2

Determines the number of years to be averaged (including target year) for period prior the potential releas.

abs.threshold

Threshold of absolute-increase method.

boundary

Boundary line function of one argument, eg. boundary=function(x) {5.0067*exp(-0.664*x)}

buffer

Number of years determining how close to one another two releases can be.

criteriaNA

Threshold for detection of moderate release in NA method.

criteria2NA

Threshold for detection of major release in NA method.

criteriaBA

Threshold for detection of moderate release in BA method.

criteria2BA

Threshold for detection of major release in BA method.

criteriaS

Threshold for detection of moderate release in S method.

criteria2S

Threshold for detection of major release in S method.

segmentBA

Determines length of the segment on which prior growth will be divided in BA method.

segment2BA

Determines length of the segment on which first mm of prior growth will be divided in BA method.

segmentS

Determines length of the segment on which prior growth will be divided in S method.

segment2S

Determines length of the segment on which first mm of prior growth will be divided in S method.

prefix

Prefix of saved files.

gfun

Determines if M1 and M2 values are mean or median for selected period.

length

Determines how many years have to be given critera exceeded to be considered as release.

notop

Number of highest data points for fitting the boundary line.

notop2

Number of highest data points for fitting the boundary line in the segments for first mm.

storedev

Format for saving the graphical outputs, eg. pdf or jpeg.

drawing

If TRUE, graphical outputs for individual trees.

...

Parameters passed to plot function.

Details

For details look at methods that are evaluated: absoluteIncrease, noblabrams and splechtna.

Value

Write many tables and figures in the current directory.

Note

Check reference.
