Function to create dendrochronological networks based on the similarity. The input for this function is a similarity table created with the sim_table() function. The thresholds are set to the defaults (Visser 2021).

Usage

dendro_network(
  sim_table,
  r_threshold = 0.5,
  sgc_threshold = 0.7,
  p_threshold = 1e-04
)

Arguments

sim_table

a table of similarities created by the sim_table() function

r_threshold

all correlations equal or above this value are taken into account for the creation of edges. If you want all positive correlations included set this to 0.

sgc_threshold

all sgc-values equal or above this value are taken into account for the creation of edges.

p_threshold

all probabilities of exceedence equal or below this value are taken into account for the creation of edges.

Value

A simplified network of tree-ring material with the edges defined by the similarity.
