View source: R/evolvcv.lite.R

Description

This function takes an object of class "simmap" with a mapped binary or multistate trait and data for two and only two continuously valued character. It then fits four different evolutionary models: common rates and correlation; different rates, common correlation; different correlations, common rates; no common structure.

Usage

1
evolvcv.lite(tree, X, maxit=2000, tol=1e-10)

Arguments

tree

an object of class "simmap".

X

an n x m matrix of tip values for m continuously valued traits in n species - row names should be species names.

maxit

an optional integer value indicating the maximum number of iterations for optimization - may need to be increased for large trees.

tol

tolerance value for "L-BFGS-B" optimization.

Value

A list with the results summarized for each model.
