Title File 5. R scripts
Downloaded 6 times
Description R scripts 1) to make Figures 2 and 5; 2) to fit alternative models to explain variation among diaspores in the rate of descent in still air (results from this analysis are in Tables 2 and 3); and 3) to fit alternative models to explain variation among species in seed shadow characteristics using tree and diaspore traits (results from this analysis are included in Tables 4 and S11).
