Phylogeny

Create and use objects of class phylog. phylog.extract returns objects of class phylog. It extracts sub-trees from a tree. phylog.permut returns objects of class phylog. It creates the different representations compatible with tree topology.

Keywords
manip
Usage
print.phylog(x, ...)
phylog.extract(phylog, node, distance = TRUE)
phylog.permut(phylog, list.nodes = NULL, distance = TRUE))
Arguments
x, phylog
: an object of class phylog
...
: further arguments passed to or from other methods
node
: a string of characters giving a node name. The functions extracts the tree rooted at this node.
distance
: if TRUE, both functions retain branch lengths. If FALSE, they returns tree with arbitrary branch lengths (each branch length equals one)
list.nodes
: a list which elements are vectors of string of character corresponding to direct descendants of nodes. This list defines one representation compatible with tree topology among the set of possibilities.
Value

  • Returns a list of class phylog :
  • tre: a character string of the phylogenetic tree in Newick format whithout branch length values
  • leaves: a vector which names corresponds to leaves and values gives the distance between leaves and nodes closest to these leaves
  • nodes: a vector which names corresponds to nodes and values gives the distance between nodes and nodes closest to these leaves
  • parts: a list which elements gives the direct descendants of each nodes
  • paths: a list which elements gives the path leading from the root to taxonomic units (leaves and nodes)
  • droot: a vector which names corresponds to taxonomic units and values gives distance between taxonomic units and the root
  • call: call
  • Wmat: a phylogenetic link matrix, generally called the covariance matrix. Matrix values $Wmat_{ij}$ correspond to path length that lead from root to the first common ancestor of the two leaves i and j
  • Wdist: a phylogenetic distance matrix of class 'dist'. Matrix values $Wdist_{ij}$ correspond to $d_{ij}$ where $d_{ij}$ is the classical distance between two leaves i and j
  • Wvalues: a vector with the eigen values of Wmat
  • Wscores: a data frame with eigen vectors of Wmat. This data frame defines an orthobasis that could be used to calculate the orthonormal decomposition of a biological trait on a tree.
  • Amat: a phylogenetic link matrix stemed from Abouheif's test and defined in Ollier et al. (submited)
  • Avalues: a vector with the eigen values of Amat
  • Adim: number of positive eigen values
  • Ascores: a data frame with eigen vectors of Amat. This data frame defines an orthobasis that could be used to calculate the orthonormal decomposition of a biological trait on a tree.
  • Aparam: a data frame with attributes associated to nodes.
  • Bindica: a data frame giving for some taxonomic units the partition of leaves that is associated to its
  • Bscores: a data frame giving an orthobasis defined by Ollier et al. (submited) that could be used to calculate the orthonormal decomposition of a biological trait on a tree.
  • Bvalues: a vector giving the degree of phylogenetic autocorrelation for each vectors of Bscores (Moran's form calculated with the matrix Wmat)
  • Blabels: a vector giving for each nodes the name of the vector of Bscores that is associated to its
