metan: Multi Environment Trials Analysis

Performs stability analysis of multi-environment trial data using parametric and non-parametric methods. Parametric methods includes Additive Main Effects and Multiplicative Interaction (AMMI) analysis by Gauch (2013) <doi:10.2135/cropsci2013.04.0241>, Ecovalence by Wricke (1965), Genotype plus Genotype-Environment (GGE) biplot analysis by Yan & Kang (2003) <doi:10.1201/9781420040371>, geometric adaptability index by Mohammadi & Amri (2008) <doi:10.1007/s10681-007-9600-6>, joint regression analysis by Eberhart & Russel (1966) <doi:10.2135/cropsci1966.0011183X000600010011x>, genotypic confidence index by Annicchiarico (1992), Murakami & Cruz's (2004) method, power law residuals (POLAR) statistics by Doring et al. (2015) <doi:10.1016/j.fcr.2015.08.005>, scale-adjusted coefficient of variation by Doring & Reckling (2018) <doi:10.1016/j.eja.2018.06.007>, stability variance by Shukla (1972) <doi:10.1038/hdy.1972.87>, weighted average of absolute scores by Olivoto et al. (2019a) <doi:10.2134/agronj2019.03.0220>, and multi-trait stability index by Olivoto et al. (2019b) <doi:10.2134/agronj2019.03.0221>. Non-parametric methods includes superiority index by Lin & Binns (1988) <doi:10.4141/cjps88-018>, nonparametric measures of phenotypic stability by Huehn (1990) <>, TOP third statistic by Fox et al. (1990) <doi:10.1007/BF00040364>. Functions for computing biometrical analysis such as path analysis, canonical correlation, partial correlation, clustering analysis, and tools for inspecting, manipulating, summarizing and plotting typical multi-environment trial data are also provided.
