Phylocom -- software for the analysis of phylogenetic community structure and trait evolution

What you can do:
Calculates numerous metrics of phylogenetic community structure and trait similarity within communities.
  • The increasing availability of phylogenetic and trait data for communities of co-occurring species has created a need for software that integrates ecological and evolutionary analyses.
  • Hypothesis testing is implemented using several null models.
  • Within the same framework, it measures phylogenetic signal and correlated evolution for species traits.
  • A range of utility functions allow community and phylogenetic data manipulation, tree and trait generation, and integration into scientific workflows.
