Variance partitioning accross nested scales

Description

Variance partitioning accross nested scales using a decomposition (varcomp function) of variance on restricted maximum likelihood (REML) method (lme function). See Messier et al. 2010 for more information. barPartvar and piePartvar are associated plotting functions.

Usage

	partvar(traits, factors, printprogress = TRUE)
	barPartvar(partvar, col.bar = NA, ...)
	piePartvar(partvar, col.pie = NA, ...)

Arguments

traits

Matrix of traits with traits in column

factors

A matrix of factors with the first column corresponds to the higher level factor, the second row the second higher level factor and so on.

printprogress

Logical value; print progress during the calculation or not.

partvar

The result of the partvar function.

col.bar

Vector of colors of bars

...

Any additional arguments are passed to the pie function.

col.pie

Vector of color for pie.

Value

An object of class "partvar" corresponding to a matrix of variance values with traits in rows and nested factors in column.
