Plot for probabilities of posterior weaning parameters

Share:

Description

plot.warnProb is a plotting utile for quick visualization of the posterior weaning parameters from an object of class "warnProb". Results of kernel density estimation for the posteriors are plotted as a form of contour with designated parameter ranges.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'warnProb'
plot(x, is.legend = TRUE, is.contour = TRUE,
  is.image = FALSE, is.prior = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class "warnProb" generated by warnProb.

is.legend

logical; if TRUE (the default), legend is plotted on the figure.

is.contour

logical; if TRUE (the default), contour lines corresponding to the probabilirties are plotted with contour. Only used if the intended weanig parameter is weaning ages (i.e., weaning.par = "age" in warnProb).

is.image

logical; if TRUE, grid of gray-scale rectangles with color strength corresponding to the probabilirties is plotted with image. The default is FALSE, and only used if the intended weanig parameter is weaning ages (i.e., weaning.par = "age" in warnProb).

is.prior

logical; if TRUE, prior density of the paramter is also plotted with dotted line. The default is FALSE, and only used if the intended weanig parameter is enrichment or weaning food (i.e., weaning.par = "enrich" or "wnfood" in warnProb).

...

additional arguments passed to plot.

Details

Values on the contour lines indicate relative probabilities based on that of the maximum density estimator.
