Calculate phylogenetic ‘signal’
phy.signal(data, method = c("lambda", "delta", "kappa", "blom.k"))
what kind of signal to calculate, one of Pagel's lambda(default), delta, and kappa, or Blomberg's K.
Phylogenetic ‘signal’ is one of those concepts that is
said a lot in community ecology, but some do not full consider
its meaning. Think carefully before rushing to report a value
whether: (1) it makes sense to assess phylogenetic ‘signal’ in
your datasets, and (2) what the phrase ‘phylogenetic signal’
actually means. This code makes use of
to get estimates of fit; alternatives that offer more flexibility
exist (see below).
Named numeric vector, where each element is a trait or community.
