Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Function draws a 3D plot where ordination result is at the bottom plane and a hclust dendrogram is drawn above the plane.

orditree3d(ord, cluster, prune = 0, display = "sites", choices = c(1, 2),
    col = "blue", text, type = "p", ...)
ordirgltree(ord, cluster, prune = 0, display = "sites", choices = c(1, 2),
    col = "blue", text, type = "p", ...)

Arguments

ord

An ordination object or an ordiplot object or any other structure defining a 2D plane.

cluster

Result of hierarchic cluster analysis, such as hclust or agnes or any other clutering that can be coerced to a compliant format by as.hclust.

prune

Number of upper levels hierarchies removed from the tree. If prune > 0, tree will be cut into prune + 1 disconnected trees.

choices

Choice of ordination axes.

display

Ordination scores displayed.

col

Colour of tree. The colour can be a vector and it is used for the points, text and terminal branches. The colour of internal branches is a mixture of connected leaves.

text

Text to replace the default of item labels when type = "t".

type

Display of leaves: "p" for points, "t" for text, and "n" for no display.

...

Arguments passed to scores and graphical functions.

Details

orditree3d uses scatterplot3d package to draw a static 3D plot of the dendrogram over the ordination, and ordirgltree uses rgl to make a dynamic, spinnable plot. The functions were developed to plot a cluster dendrogram over a 2D ordination plane, but any other plane can be used, for instance, a map.

Value

Function orditree3d returns invisibly a scatterplot3d result object amended with items points and internal that give the projected coordinates of ordination scores and internal nodes, and col.points and col.internal that give their colours. All matrix-like objects can be accessed with scores.

Function ordirgltree returns nothing.
