Student-Newman-Keuls Test

Description

Test difference between means of entire collection (EC) and core set (CS) for quantitative traits by Newman-Keuls or Student-Newman-Keuls test (Newman 1939; Keuls 1952).

Usage

snk.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 data frame with the following components.

Trait

The quantitative trait.

EC_Min

The minimum value of the trait in EC.

EC_Max

The maximum value of the trait in EC.

EC_Mean

The mean value of the trait in EC.

EC_SE

The standard error of the trait in EC.

CS_Min

The minimum value of the trait in CS.

CS_Max

The maximum value of the trait in CS.

CS_Mean

The mean value of the trait in CS.

CS_SE

The standard error of the trait in CS.

SNK_pvalue

The p value of the Student-Newman-Keuls test for equality of means of EC and CS.

SNK_significance

The significance of the Student-Newman-Keuls test for equality of means of EC and CS.
