## Computation of Distance Matrices of Percentage Data

### Description

computes for percentage data some distance matrices.

### Usage

```dist.prop(df, method = NULL, diag = FALSE, upper = FALSE)
```

### Arguments

 `df` a data frame containing only positive or null values, used as row percentages `method` an integer between 1 and 5. If NULL the choice is made with a console message. See details `diag` a logical value indicating whether the diagonal of the distance matrix should be printed by ‘print.dist’ `upper` a logical value indicating whether the upper triangle of the distance matrix should be printed by ‘print.dist’

### Details

1 = Manly

d1 = sum|p(i) - q(i)|/2

2 = Overlap index Manly

d2 = 1 - Sum(p(i)q(i))/sqrt(Sum(p(i)^2))/sqrt(Sum(q(i)^2))

3 = Rogers 1972 (one locus)

d3 = sqrt(0.5*Sum(p(i)-q(i)^2))

4 = Nei 1972 (one locus)

d4 = -ln(Sum(p(i)q(i))/sqrt(Sum(p(i)^2))/sqrt(Sum(q(i)^2)))

5 = Edwards 1971 (one locus)

d5= sqrt (1 - (Sum(sqrt(p(i)q(i)))))

### Value

returns a distance matrix, object of class `dist`

```data(microsatt)
w <- microsatt\$tab[1:microsatt\$loci.eff[1]]

g1 <- scatter(dudi.pco(lingoes(dist.prop(w, 1)), scann = FALSE), plot = FALSE)
g2 <- scatter(dudi.pco(lingoes(dist.prop(w, 2)), scann = FALSE), plot = FALSE)
g3 <- scatter(dudi.pco(dist.prop(w, 3), scann = FALSE), plot = FALSE)
g4 <- scatter(dudi.pco(lingoes(dist.prop(w, 4)), scann = FALSE), plot = FALSE)

} else {

par(mfrow = c(1, 1))
}```
