palm: Phylogenetic and quantitative traits of amazonian palm trees

Description Format Details Note Source Examples

Description

This data set describes the phylogeny of 66 amazonian palm trees. It also gives 7 traits corresponding to these 66 species.

Format

palm is a list containing the 2 following objects:

tre

is a character string giving the phylogenetic tree in Newick format.

traits

is a data frame with 66 species (rows) and 7 traits (columns).

Details

Variables of palm$traits are the following ones:
- rord: specific richness with five ordered levels
- h: height in meter (squared transform)
- dqual: diameter at breast height in centimeter with five levels sout : subterranean, d1(0, 5 cm), d2(5, 15 cm), d3(15, 30 cm) and d4(30, 100 cm)
- vfruit: fruit volume in mm^3 (logged transform)
- vgrain: seed volume in mm^3 (logged transform)
- aire: spatial distribution area (km^2)
- alti: maximum altitude in meter (logged transform)

Note

This dataset replaces the former version in ade4.
