## Parametric Indices of Phylogenetic Uniqueness

### Description

Function `evouniparam`

calculates phylogenetic uniqueness in communities using parametric indices derived from Tsallis and Hill compositional indices. `evouniparam`

can also be applied to functional trees rather than phylogenies, to calculate a functional uniqueness.
The function `plot.evouniparam`

plots the results of function `evouniparam`

.

### Usage

```
evouniparam(phyl, comm,
method = c("hill", "tsallis", "renyi"),
q = 2, tol = 1e-08)
## S3 method for class 'evouniparam'
plot(x, legend = TRUE,
legendposi = "topright",
axisLABEL = "Tree-based uniqueness",
type="b", col = if(is.numeric(x)) NULL
else sample(colors(distinct = TRUE), nrow(x$uni)),
lty = if(is.numeric(x)) NULL else rep(1, nrow(x$uni)),
pch = if(is.numeric(x)) NULL else rep(19, nrow(x$uni)),
...)
```

### Arguments

`phyl` |
an object inheriting the class |

`comm` |
a data frame or a matrix typically with communities as rows, species as columns and abundance as entry. Species should be labeled as in the phylogenetic tree where they are the tips. |

`method` |
a string: either "hill" for the Hill numbers (Hill 1973), "tsallis" for the Tsallis or HCDT entropy (Harvda and Charvat 1967; Daroczy 1970; Tsallis 1988), or "renyi" for Renyi's entropy (Renyi 1960). If several values are given, only the first one is considered. See details. |

`q` |
a vector with nonnegative value(s) for parameter |

`tol` |
numeric tolerance threshold: values between - |

`x` |
an object of class |

`legend` |
a logical. If TRUE a legend is given with the colour, the type of line (etc.) used to define the uniqueness curve of each community. |

`legendposi` |
a string that gives the position of the legend to be passed to function |

`axisLABEL` |
a string to display on the main axis of the plot to designate what we are measuring. The default is |

`type` |
a string to be passed to the graphic argument |

`col` |
vector of colours to be passed to the graphic argument |

`lty` |
vector of type of line (plain, broken etc.) to be passed to the graphic argument |

`pch` |
type of point (open circle, close circle, square etc.) to be passed to the graphic argument |

`...` |
other arguments can be added and passed to the functions |

### Details

Function `evouniparam`

calculates feature uniqueness (features = branch units on a phylogenetic [or functional] tree) using parametric indices qfuniHCDT (with `method=tsallis`

), qfuniHill (with `method=hill`

), qfuniRenyi (with `method=renyi`

) developed in Pavoine and Ricotta (2019). Note that Pavoine and Ricotta (2019) recommend the use of index qfuniHill (with `method=hill`

).

### Value

If only one value of `q`

is given, the function `evouniparam`

returns a vector with the phylogenetic uniqueness of each community.
If more than one value of `q`

is given, a list of two objects is returned:

`q` |
the vector of values for |

`uni` |
a data frame with the phylogenetic uniqueness in each community calculated for all values of |

The function `plot.evouniparam`

returns a graphic.
