DI_compare {DImodels}R Documentation

Compare a Fitted Diversity-Interactions Model to the Reference Model

Description

This function fits the reference model internally and compares a DI model fit to it using anova.

Usage

DI_compare(model, ...)

Arguments

model

A DI model object.

...

Further arguments passed to anova.

Details

This function takes a DI model object as input, fits the reference model internally and compares the two models using anova. The reference model includes an additive effect of community (each unique combination of species proportions) in the linear predictor. For more details on the reference model, see Connolly et al. (2013).

Value

The function returns the reference model, a glm model object.

Examples


## Load the sim1 data
  data(sim1)

## Fit the FULL model
  m1 <- DI(y = "response", block = "block", prop = 3:6, 
           DImodel = "FULL", data = sim1)

## Compare with the reference model
  DI_compare(m1, test = "F")
