Geiger

Build Status

This is the development version of the geiger package for manipulating phylogenetic comparative data and fitting macroevolutionary models. The package can be downloaded from CRAN

install.packages("geiger")

or installed directly from github with the devtools package

install.packages("devtools")
library(devtools)
install_github("mwpennell/geiger-v2")

Major features
