[R] distance matrix from metaMDS

Don't the functions metaMDSdist() and metaMDSredist() that are documented on the metaMDS manual page give you the distance matrix? If you want to compute the distances based on a single axis, you could use vegdist().

Subject: [R] distance matrix from metaMDS

Dear R users,

I would like to access the distance matrix generated by metaMDS as well as use the dist function to calculate the euclidean distance for each axis in the NMDS. I am having trouble finding a way to access these variables and any help is greatly appreciated.

For the distance matrix I know I could just calculate the bray-curtis distance but it would be nice to know how to get it from the NMDS function.
For the euclidean distance, the only thing I can find within metaMDS is the score function but there must be some way for me to call on/access the ordination distance for one axis right?

The reason for this is I would like to do something like the stressplot function but for each axis.

Thank you,
