This function subsets an epicontacts object based on defined size(s) of clusters (clusters being groups of connected individuals/nodes). Subsetting may be done by specifying a particular cluster size of interest, minimum cluster size, maximum cluster size, or a range (minimum and maximum) of cluster sizes.

subset_clusters_by_size(x, cs = NULL, cs_min = NULL, cs_max = NULL)

Arguments

x

an epicontacts object

cs

cluster size to be used for subsetting

cs_min

minimum cluster size for subsetting

cs_max

maximum cluster size for subsetting

Value

An epicontacts object whose contact dataframe corresponds to all clusters of specified cluster sizes.

Examples
