plot is used to plot the I-splines and fit of a generalized dissimilarity model created using the `gdm`

function.

`x` |
A gdm model object returned from |

`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. |

plot returns NULL. Use `summary.gdm`

to obtain a synopsis of the model object.
