samp_phyglm(formula, data, phy, n.sim = 30, breaks = seq(0.1, 0.5, 0.1),
  btol = 50, track = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

formula

The model formula

data

Data frame containing species traits with row names matching tips in phy.

phy

A phylogeny (class 'phylo') matching data.

n.sim

The number of times species are randomly deleted for each break.

breaks

A vector containing the percentages of species to remove.

btol

Bound on searching space. For details see phyloglm

track

Print a report tracking function progress (default = TRUE)

Further arguments to be passed to phyloglm

Details

This function randomly removes a given percentage of species (controlled by breaks) from the full phylogenetic logistic regression, fits a phylogenetic logistic regression model without these species using phyloglm, repeats this many times (controlled by n.sim), stores the results and calculates the effects on model parameters.

Only logistic regression using the "logistic_MPLE"-method from phyloglm is implemented.

Currently, this function can only implement simple logistic models (i.e. trait~ predictor). In the future we will implement more complex models.

Output can be visualised using sensi_plot.

Value

The function samp_phylm returns a list with the following components:

formula: The formula

full.model.estimates: Coefficients, aic and the optimised value of the phylogenetic parameter (e.g. lambda or kappa) for the full model without deleted species.

sensi.estimates: A data frame with all simulation estimates. Each row represents a model rerun with a given number of species n.remov removed, representing n.percent of the full dataset. Columns report the calculated regression intercept (intercept), difference between simulation intercept and full model intercept (DIFintercept), the percentage of change in intercept compared to the full model (intercept.perc) and intercept p-value (pval.intercept). All these parameters are also reported for the regression slope (DIFestimate etc.). Additionally, model aic value (AIC) and the optimised value (optpar) of the phylogenetic parameter (e.g. kappa or lambda, depending on the phylogenetic model used) are reported. Lastly we reported the standardised difference in intercept (sDIFintercept) and slope (sDIFestimate).

sign.analysis For each break (i.e. each percentage of species removed) this reports the percentage of statistically significant (at p<0.05) intercepts (perc.sign.intercept) over all repetitions as well as the percentage of statisticaly significant (at p<0.05) slopes (perc.sign.estimate).

data: Original full dataset.

Note

Please be aware that dropping species may reduce power to detect significant slopes/intercepts and may partially be responsible for a potential effect of species removal on p-values. Please also consult standardised differences in the (summary) output.
