## S3 method for class 'gdm'
plot(x, plot.layout = c(2, 2), plot.color = "blue", plot.linewidth = 2,
	include.rug = FALSE, rug.sitepair = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

A gdm model object returned from gdm.

plot.layout

This argument specifies the row and column layout for the plots, including: (1) a single page plot of observed response data against the raw linear predictor (ecological distance) from the model, and (2) a single page plot of the observed response against the predicted response from the model, i.e. after applying the link function, 1.0 - exp(-y), to the linear predictor, and (3) the I-splines fitted to the individual predictors. Default is 2 rows by 2 columns. To produce one predictor plot per page set plot.layout to c(1,1). The first two model plots are always produced on a single page each and therefore the layout parameter affects only the layout of the I-spline plots for those predictors that featured in the model fitting process (i.e., predictors with all-zero I-spline coefficients are not plotted).

plot.color

Color of the data points that are plotted for the overall plots.

plot.linewidth

The line width for the regression line over-plotted in the two overall plots to optimize the display of the line over the data points.

include.rug

Whether or not to include a rug plot of the predictor values used to fit the gdm in the I-spline plots. When set to TRUE, a site-pair table must be supplied for the rug.sitepair argument. Default is FALSE.

rug.sitepair

A site-pair table used to add a rug plot of the predictor values used to fit the gdm in the I-spline plots. This should be the same site-pair table used to fit the gdm model being plotted. The function does not check whether the supplied site-pair table matches that used in model fitting.

...

Ignored.

Value

plot returns NULL. Use summary.gdm to obtain a synopsis of the model object.
