[…] green algae published to date., for each trait, we chose to calculate three commonly used metrics of phylogenetic signal: blomberg's k, pagel's λ, and moran's i using the picante, geiger and adephylo packages in r respectively [–]. p-values for the significance of k and i were based on 999 randomizations each, whereas the significance test for λ was based on a likelihood ratio test. k […]

[…] and the resulting tree was rendered ultrametric with the “chronos” function. traits of gene presence/absence were plotted alongside the tips (see ) using the “table.phylo4d” function of the adephylo package (). the phylogenetic tree of sela proteins was obtained using the maximum-likelihood method implemented in the raxml program ver. 7.7.8 () using the protcatgtr amino acid […]

[…] ads parameters were analyzed together in phytools package after scaling and centralizing the data, while the positive and negative scores for each trait were displayed in the aegla’s phylogeny using adephylo. for those parameters correlated with the two main eigenvectors and with explained variance higher than 60%, we have tested for each one hypotheses of co-variation between ads […]

[…] the opsin ω-trees (i.e. a ω-tree linearization), were calculated and standardized to identify ω-lineage outlier tendencies. the ω-lineage was calculated using the distroot(tree,tips) function of the adephylo package of the r statistical software [, ]. statistically significant ω-lineage variations in specific branches were tested via lrt using the one-ratio vs. the two-ratio model comparison: […]

[…] were trimmed to keep only these 14 tips using the function drop.tip() in the r package ape [] and the patristic root-to-tip distances were computed using the distroot() function in the r package adephylo []., we first implied a simple linear regression method using the lm() function in r [] on log-transformed flowering cycles and patristic distances calculated from unpartitioned ml tree […]

[…] on the three metrics blomberg’ k (blomberg, garland, & ives, ), pagel's λ (pagel, ), and abouheif/moran's i (abouheif, ) (table ), and calculated in the r‐packages “phytools” (revell, ) and “adephylo” (jombart, balloux, & dray, ), for the subset of 121 species (of the 143 angiosperm species occurring in the 27 plots) for which data on all six traits were available from kröber et al.

[…] phylogenetic signal (autocorrelation) was tested on each synthetic variable by abouheif's test (abouheif, ; pavoine, ollier, pontier, & chessel, ). these methods were performed using the adephylo package of r (r core team, ). the reconstruction of ancestral states of the four syndromes suggested that strategy b should be subdivided in two groups. thereby the first three components […]
