SumBL {cati} | R Documentation |
Sum of branch length of a classification dendrogram (Petchey and Gaston, 2002)
SumBL(traits, gower.dist = TRUE, method.hclust = "average",
scale.tr = TRUE, method.dist = "euclidian")
traits |
Traits matrix (traits in column) |
gower.dist |
Calculate gower distance using the function gowdis from package FD. |
method.hclust |
Define the method for the hclust function (default is "average" i.e. UPGMA). |
scale.tr |
Does traits need to be scale before multi-traits metric calculation? Only use when gower.dist = FALSE. Default is yes. |
method.dist |
Method to calculate the distance in case of multi-traits metric (function dist). Only use when gower.dist = FALSE. Default is euclidian. |
The value of the sum of branch length from a classification dendrogram of traits.
