Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

Simulate balanced and unbalanced trees.

1 2 |

`t` |
Number of tips (i.e., species). Defaults to 10 tips. |

`metric` |
Methods to use to generate trees, one of "colless", "beta", or gamma (see details). Defaults to "colless". |

`n` |
Number of trees to produce. Defaults to 10 trees. |

`cutlow` |
Value at which to filter trees on the low (e.g., unbalanced) side of the metric. |

`cuthigh` |
Value at which to filter trees on the high (e.g., balanced) side of the metric. |

See the `apTreeshape`

package for a description of
the beta-splitting metric. Both Colless' metric and beta
describe the extent to which a tree is balanced or not.

List of length n, each elemen of two parts (one is the balance metric, and the other is the phylogeny)

# Simulate 20 trees, each with 10 tips (=species), then pull out trees and metrics,
# using the colless' statistic (fxn: colless) of the apTreeshape package
out <- simbal(t = 10, metric = "colless", n = 20, cutlow = -0.5, cuthigh = 0.5) # run it
out$bal # get the balanced trees
out$unbal # get the unbalanced trees
# Using beta-splitting (fxn: maxlik.betasplit) metric of the apTreeshape package
out <- simbal(t = 10, metric = "beta", n = 100, cutlow = -0.5, cuthigh = 0.5) # run it
out$bal # get the balanced trees
out$unbal # get the unbalanced trees
# Using gamma statistic (fxn: gammaStat) metric of the ape package
out <- simbal(t = 10, metric = "gamma", n = 100, cutlow = 1.6, cuthigh = 3) # run it
out$bal # get the trees with nodes close to root on average
out$unbal # get the trees with nodes close to the tips on average
