Phylogenetic Comparative Methods and Approaches in Plant Science

Examining conflict and signal in phylogenies using graphs and other tools.

The construction of phylogenies consisting of thousands of species or thousands of gene regions and projects like the Open Tree of Life have underscored the importance of examining the source of signal and conflict in phylogenies. Here I describe ways to measure, visualize, and generally explore conflict and signal in data matrices and phylogenetic trees. In addition to constructing species trees or consensus trees, these analyses can be enlightening for any number of data sets and especially as researchers move to more complete genomic datasets.
