nnodes: Counts the number of nodes (Vertices) in a tree

Description

Counts the number of nodes in a tree (dendrogram, hclust, phylo).

Usage

nnodes(x, ...)

# S3 method for default nnodes(x, ...)

# S3 method for dendrogram nnodes(x, ...)

# S3 method for hclust nnodes(x, ...)

# S3 method for phylo nnodes(x, ...)

Arguments

x

tree object (dendrogram or hclust)

...

not used

Value

The number of leaves in the tree

Details

The idea for the name is from functions like ncol, and nrow.

The phylo method is based on turning the phylo to hclust and than to dendrogram. It may not work for complex phylo trees.

nrow, count_terminal_nodes, nleaves

Examples

Run this code
# NOT RUN {
hc <- hclust(dist(USArrests[1:5, ]), "ave")
dend <- as.dendrogram(hc)

nnodes(dend) # 9
nnodes(hc) # 9
# }
