Phylogenetics for the Environmental Sciences

Eco-phylogenetic and community phylogenetic analyses. Keeps community ecological and phylogenetic data matched up and comparable using 'comparative.comm' objects. Wrappers for common community phylogenetic indices ('pez.shape', 'pez.evenness', 'pez.dispersion', and 'pez.dissimilarity' metrics). Implementation of Cavender-Bares (2004) correlation of phylogenetic and ecological matrices ('fingerprint.regression'). Phylogenetic Generalised Linear Mixed Models (PGLMMs; 'pglmm') following Ives & Helmus (2011) and Rafferty & Ives (2013). Simulation of null assemblages, traits, and phylogenies ('scape', 'sim.meta.comm').

Functions in pez

Name Description
comparative.comm Creates a community comparative ecology object, the basis of all functions in pez
drop_tip Trim a phylogeny
pez.shape Calculate (phylogenetic) shape: examine assemblage composition
fingerprint.regression Regress trait evolution against trait ecology (following Cavender-Bares et al. 2004)
pez.dispersion Calculate (phylogenetic) dispersion: examine assemblages in the context of a source pools
pez.metrics Phylogenetic and functional trait metrics within pez
eco.scape scape simulation with a macro-ecological focus Make co-existence matrices based on phylogeny (and/or) traits, and community or environemntal overlap
