Taxon {allometric}R Documentation

Create a taxonomic hierarchy

Description

Taxon represents a taxonomic hierarchy (from family through species). This class represents a number of validity checks to ensure the taxon is correctly structured. A taxon must have at least a family specified, and neither genus nor species can be specified without the "shallower" layers of the hierarchy specified first. Group Taxons together with Taxa().

Usage

Taxon(family = NA_character_, genus = NA_character_, species = NA_character_)

Arguments

family

The taxonomic family

genus

The taxonomic genus

species
