fission {ade4}R Documentation

Fission pattern and heritable morphological traits

Description

This data set contains the mean values of five highly heritable linear combinations of cranial metric (GM1-GM3) and non metric (GN1-GN2) for 8 social groups of Rhesus Macaques on Cayo Santiago. It also describes the fission tree depicting the historical phyletic relationships.

Usage

data(fission)

Format

fission is a list containing the 2 following objects :

tre
is a character string giving the fission tree in Newick format.
tab
is a data frame with 8 social groups and five traits : cranial metrics (GM1, GM2, GM3) and cranial non metrics (GN1, GN2)

Examples

data(fission)
fis.phy <- newick2phylog(fission$tre)
table.phylog(fission$tab[names(fis.phy$leaves),], fis.phy, csi = 2)
gearymoran(fis.phy$Amat, fission$tab)
