Ornstein-Uhlenbeck methods for comparative phylogenetic hypotheses
The ouch package provides facilities for Ornstein-Uhlenbeck based methods of phylogenetic comparative analysis.
The basic class,
ouchtree, is provided to encode a phylogenetic tree.
Plot and print methods are provided.
browntree derives from class
ouchtree and encodes the results of fitting a Brownian Motion model to data.
hansentree derives from class
ouchtree and encodes the results of fitting a Hansen model to data.
