Phylogenetic diversity metrics from molecular phylogenies: modelling expected degree of error under realistic rate variation

Ritchie, Andrew; Hua, Xia; Cardillo, Marcel; Yaxley, Keaghan; Dinnage, Russell; Bromham, Lindell


Aim Phylogenetic diversity or phylo‐diversity measures use information about evolutionary history and relationships to inform conservation priorities. These metrics are usually derived from the branches of molecular phylogenies. But inferring phylogenetic timescale from molecular data relies on many assumptions about the evolutionary process, most of which are based on statistical convenience rather than biological information. Here we ask whether known patterns of variation in rate of...[Show more]
