predict(HCbb.cl,type="disp") might also be useful, or
predict(HCbb.cl, type="disp", newdata= ...) where the 'newdata'
represents sets of covariates for which you would like to get the
predicted dispersion. (The coefficients in the output for a non-trivial
dispersion model represent effects on the log-phi scale -- they might be
log-dispersion parameters for different groups, e.g. if you used
dispformula=~f-1 where f was a factor, or they might represent
differences in log-dispersion across groups, or per unit change in a
continuous covariate, or ...)

I read in the manual that "phi=exp(eta) (where eta is the linear predictor from the dispersion model)". Does this indicate that these estimates of the Dispersion model appear on the log scale, and to get phi, they must be back-transformed?
