Description

Create a table of summary statistics per locus.

Usage

1
2
locus_table(x, index = "simpson", lev = "allele", population = "ALL",
  information = TRUE)

Arguments

x

a genind or genclone object.

index

Which diversity index to use. Choices are

  • "simpson" (Default) to give Simpson's index

  • "shannon" to give the Shannon-Wiener index

  • "invsimpson" to give the Inverse Simpson's index aka the Stoddard and Tayor index.

lev

At what level do you want to analyze diversity? Choices are "allele" (Default) or "genotype".

population

Select the populations to be analyzed. This is the parameter sublist passed on to the function popsub. Defaults to "ALL".

information

When TRUE (Default), this will print out a header of information to the R console.

Value

a table with 4 columns indicating the Number of alleles/genotypes observed, Diversity index chosen, Nei's 1978 gene diversity (expected heterozygosity), and Evenness.

Note

The calculation of Hexp is (n/(n - 1))*(1 - sum(p^2)) where p is the allele frequencies at a given locus and n is the number of observed alleles (Nei, 1978) in each locus and then returning the average. Caution should be exercised in interpreting the results of Hexp with polyploid organisms with ambiguous ploidy. The lack of allelic dosage information will cause rare alleles to be over-represented and artificially inflate the index. This is especially true with small sample sizes.
