Size Ratio

Usage

size_null_model(speciesData, algo = "size_uniform", metric = "var_ratio", nReps = 1000, saveSeed = FALSE, algoOpts = list(), metricOpts = list(), suppressProg = FALSE)

Arguments

speciesData
a data vector in which each entry is the measured trait (such as body size or flowering date) for each species in the assemblage.
algo
the algorithm to use, must be "size_uniform", "size_uniform_user", "size_source_pool", "size_gamma".
metric
the metric used to caluclate the null model: choices are "min_diff", "min_ratio", "var_diff", "var_ratio"; default is "var_ratio".
nReps
the number of replicate null assemblages to create; default is 1000 replicates.
saveSeed
TRUE or FALSE. If TRUE the current seed is saved so the simulation can be repeated; default is FALSE.
algoOpts
a list containing all the options for the specific algorithm you want to use. Must match the algorithm given in the `algo` argument.
metricOpts
a list containing all the options for the specific metric you want to use. Must match the metric given in the `metric` argument.
suppressProg
TRUE or FALSE. If true, display of the progress bar in the console is suppressed; default is FALSE. This setting is useful for creating markdown documents with `knitr`.

Description

Create a Size Ratio null model

Examples

## <strong>Not run</strong>: # ## Run the null model # rodentMod <- size_null_model(dataRodents,suppressProg=T) # ## Summary and plot info # summary(rodentMod) # plot(rodentMod,type="hist") # plot(rodentMod,type="size") # # ## Uniform Size model with user inputs # rodentMod2 <- size_null_model(dataRodents,algo="size_uniform_user", # algoOpts = list(userLow = 3,userHigh=15),suppressProg=T) # summary(rodentMod2) # plot(rodentMod2,type="hist") # plot(rodentMod2,type="size") # # ### Source pool model # # rodentMod_sp <- size_null_model(dataRodents,algo="size_source_pool", # algoOpts = list(sourcePool = runif(dim(dataRodents)[1],1,15))) # # summary(rodentMod_sp) # plot(rodentMod_sp,type="hist") # plot(rodentMod_sp,type="size") # ## <strong>End(Not run)</strong>
