procella: Phylogeny and quantitative traits of birds

Description Format Details Note References Examples

Description

This data set describes the phylogeny of 19 birds as reported by Bried et al. (2002). It also gives 6 traits corresponding to these 19 species.

Format

procella 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 19 species and 6 traits

Details

Variables of procella$traits are the following ones:
- site.fid: a numeric vector that describes the percentage of site fidelity
- mate.fid: a numeric vector that describes the percentage of mate fidelity
- mass: an integer vector that describes the adult body weight (g)
- ALE: a numeric vector that describes the adult life expectancy (years)
- BF: a numeric vector that describes the breeding frequencies
- col.size: an integer vector that describes the colony size (no nests monitored)

Note

This dataset replaces the former version in ade4.
