##### Depth and Heights of Nodes and Tips

These functions return the depths or heights of nodes and tips.

- Keywords
- manip

##### Usage

```
node.depth(phy, method = 1)
node.depth.edgelength(phy)
node.height(phy, clado.style = FALSE)
```

##### Arguments

- phy
an object of class "phylo".

- method
an integer value (1 or 2); 1: the node depths are proportional to the number of tips descending from each node, 2: they are evenly spaced.

- clado.style
a logical value; if

`TRUE`

, the node heights are calculated for a cladogram.

##### Details

`node.depth`

computes the depth of a node depending on the value
of `method`

(see the option `node.depth`

in
`plot.phylo`

). The value of 1 is given to the tips.

`node.depth.edgelength`

does the same but using branch lengths.

`node.height`

computes the heights of nodes and tips as plotted
by a phylogram or a cladogram.

##### Value

A numeric vector indexed with the node numbers of the matrix `edge' of
`phy`

.
