Arguments

phylo

An object of class phylo

df

A dataframe containing the traits to be plotted

trait

A string representing the name of column in the dataframe to be plotted

taxa.names

A string representing the name of column in the dataframe that contains the names of the taxa

num.breaks

For continuous traits, the number of bins to separate the data into

col.names

A vector of colors to use for tip labels

leg.title

A title for the tip color legend

main

A main title for the plot

cut.labs

A main title for the plot

leg.cex

A main title for the plot

tip.labs

A main title for the plot

...

Additional argument to pass to the plot.phylo function

Details

If if trait is a factor then each level of the factor is plotted with the corresponding col.names value (if length(num.breaks) > length(col.names) colors are recycled.) If trait is not a factor then it is assumed to be continuous and trait is evenly divided into num.breaks levels.

Value

The command is invoked for its side effect, a plot of the phylo with tips colored based on trait
