View source: R/nLTTDiff.R

Description

This function takes two ultrametric phylogenetic trees, calculates the normalized Lineage-Through-Time statistic for both trees and then calculates the difference between the two statistics.

Usage

1
nLTTstat(tree1, tree2, distance_method = "abs", ignore_stem = TRUE, log_transform = FALSE)

Arguments

tree1

an object of class "phylo"

tree2

an object of class "phylo"

distance_method

Chosen measurement of distance between the two nLTT curves, options are (case sensitive):
- "abs": use the absolute distance
- "squ": use the squared distance;

ignore_stem

a boolean whether to ignore the stem length

log_transform

a boolean wether to log-transform the number of lineages before normalization

Value

The difference between the two nLTT statistics
