distinctUltra {adiv}R Documentation

Ultrametric Tree-based Species' Originality

Description

The function calculates two indices of species' originality that rely on the structure and branch lengths of ultrametric (phylogenetic) trees. Trees with polytomies are allowed.

Usage

distinctUltra(phyl, method = c("Qb","2Hb"))

Arguments

phyl

an object inheriting the class phylo (see package ape), phylo4 (see package phylobase), or hclust, with ultrametric properties.

method

a string or a vector of strings. Possible values are Qb and 2Hb. Qb is for the Pavoine et al. QE-based (also named Qb) index (Pavoine et al. 2005); 2Hb is for Pavoine et al. 2H-based index (which could also be named more shortly as 2Hb) (vector that maximizes index 2H, Pavoine and Izsak 2014).

Value

A data frame with species as rows and originality indices as columns.
