randtest.amova {ade4}R Documentation

Permutation tests on an analysis of molecular variance (in C).

Description

Tests the components of covariance with permutation processes described by Excoffier et al. (1992).

amovahum <- amova(humDNAm$samples, sqrt(humDNAm$distances), humDNAm$structures)
amovahum
randtesthum <- randtest.amova(amovahum, 49)
plot(randtesthum)
