Tools for performing phylogenetic comparative methods for datasets with with multiple observations per species (intraspecific variation or measurement error) and/or missing data. Performs ancestral state reconstruction and missing data imputation on the estimated evolutionary model, which can be specified as Brownian Motion, Ornstein-Uhlenbeck, Early-Burst, Pagel's lambda, kappa, or delta, or a star phylogeny.
Rphylopars is an R package for conducting multivariate phylogenetic comparative analyses on datasets with missing observations and missing data. Rphylopars uses a fast linear-time algorithm and incorporate a variety of evolutionary models, including estimation of tree transformation parameters (Early-Burst, Ornstein-Uhlenbeck, lambda, kappa, delta) as well as the multivariate Ornstein-Uhlenbeck model.
