traits_to_mfg_df {algaeClassify}R Documentation

Assign morphofunctional groups to a dataframe of functional traits and higher taxonomy

Description

Assign morphofunctional groups to a dataframe of functional traits and higher taxonomy

Usage

traits_to_mfg_df(dframe, arg.names = c("flagella", "size", "colonial",
  "filament", "centric", "gelatinous", "aerotopes", "class", "order"))

Arguments

dframe

An R dataframe containing functional trait information and higher taxonomy

arg.names

Character string of column names corresponding to arguments for traits_to_mfg()

Value

A character vector containing morpho-functional group (MFG) designations

Examples

#create a two-row example dataframe of functional traits
func.dframe=data.frame(flagella=1,size=c("large","small"),colonial=0,filament=0,centric=NA,
                       gelatinous=0,aerotopes=0,class="Euglenophyceae",order="Euglenales",
                       stringsAsFactors=FALSE)

#check the dataframe
print(func.dframe)

#run the function to produce a two-element character vector
func.dframe$MFG<-traits_to_mfg_df(func.dframe,c("flagella","size","colonial",
                                 "filament","centric","gelatinous",
                                 "aerotopes","class","order"))

print(func.dframe)
