phylosignal: Exploring the Phylogenetic Signal in Continuous Traits

A collection of tools to explore the phylogenetic signal in univariate and multivariate data. The package provides functions to plot traits data against a phylogenetic tree, different measures and tests for the phylogenetic signal, methods to describe where the signal is located and a phylogenetic clustering method.
