Box Plots

Description

Plot Box-and-Whisker plots (Tukey 1970; McGill et al. 1978) to graphically compare the probability distributions of quantitative traits between entire collection (EC) and core set (CS).

Usage

box.evaluate.core(data, names, quantitative, selected)

Arguments

data

The data as a data frame object. The data frame should possess one row per individual and columns with the individual names and multiple trait/character data.

names

Name of column with the individual names as a character string

quantitative

Name of columns with the quantitative traits as a character vector.

selected

Character vector with the names of individuals selected in core collection and present in the names column.

Value

A list with the ggplot objects of box plots of CS and EC for each trait specified as quantitative.
