This function computes Local Indicator of Phylogenetic Association (local Moran's I) for each tip of a tree. Tests are based on permutations.

`reps` |

`prox.phylo` |

If "`prox.phylo`

" is a character string,
the phylogenetic proximity matrix is computed internally
using the function `proxTips`

from the package adephylo.
Different methods are available:
"`patristic`

","`nNodes`

","`Abouheif`

" and "`sumDD`

".
See `proxTips`

for details about the methods.

If `as.p4d`

is `FALSE`

(default), the function returns a list:

- lipa
A matrix of LIPA indices computed for each tip of the tree and each trait.

- p.value
A matrix of p-values (tests of LIPA indices)

- reps
Number of permutations for the tests

- alternative
Alternative hypothesis for the tests

If `as.p4d`

is `TRUE`

, the function returns a `phylo4d`

object
with LIPA values as tips associated data.
