adonis dispRity (from vegan::adonis2)


Passing dispRity objects to the adonis2 function from the vegan package.


  formula = matrix ~ group,
  method = "euclidean",
  warn = TRUE,
  matrix = 1



A dispRity object with subsets


The model formula (default is matrix ~ group, see details)


The distance method to be passed to adonis2 and eventually to vegdist (see details - default method ="euclidean")


Any optional arguments to be passed to adonis2


logical, whether to print internal warnings (TRUE; default - advised) or not (FALSE).


numeric, which matrix to use (default is 1).


The first element of the formula (the response) must be called matrix and the predictors must be existing in the subsets of the dispRity object.

If data$matrix[[1]] is not a distance matrix, distance is calculated using the dist function. The type of distance can be passed via the standard method argument that will be recycled by adonis2.

If the dispRity data has custom subsets with a single group, the formula is set to matrix ~ group.

If the dispRity data has custom subsets with multiple group categories (separated by a dot, e.g. c("group1.cat1", "group1.cat2", "group2.catA", "group2.catB") being two groups with two categories each), the default formula is matrix ~ first_group but can be set to any combination (e.g. matrix ~ first_group + second_group).

If the dispRity data has time subsets, the predictor is automatically set to time.
