brown {ouch}R Documentation

Phylogenetic Brownian motion models

Description

The function brown creates a browntree object by fitting a Brownian-motion model to data.

Usage

brown(data, tree)

Arguments

data

Phenotypic data for extant species, i.e., at the terminal ends of the phylogenetic tree. This can either be a numeric vector or a list. If it is a numeric vector, there must be one entry for every node. If it is a list, it must consist entirely of numeric vectors, each of which has one entry per node. A data-frame is coerced to a list.

tree

A phylogenetic tree, specified as an ouchtree object.

Value

brown returns an object of class browntree.

h1
plot(h1)

h2 <- hansen(log(bimac['size']),tree,bimac['OU.1'],sqrt.alpha=1,sigma=1)
