PEM.build.alienData: Construct Phylogenetic Eigenvector Maps with 'alienData'

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References

View source: R/PEM.build.alienData.R

Description

This function is essentially a wrapper around PEM.build. It is designed to use the phylogenetic information in an alienData object to construct phylogenetic eigenvector maps and replace (or add) them as traits in a new alienData object.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'alienData'
PEM.build(x, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class alienData. See details.

...

Arguments passed to PEM.build. See details.

Details

For this function it is essential that the alienData object includes phylogenetic information, otherwise the function will send an error message. However, it is not necessary for the alienData object to include traits.

The arguments passed to PEM.build are typically that ones used for tunning when constructing the phylogenetic eigenvector maps.

Value

An object of class alienData.
