Various Specific Measures of Phylogenetic Diversity


Gundlapally Sathyanarayana Reddy

The branching pattern of ancestor–descendant relationships among ‘Taxa’ (e.g., species or their genes) is named a ‘phylogeny’. ‘Phylogenetics’ is that the process of attempting to estimate these historical relationships by examining information like DNA, protein sequences, or morphological (shape) characters from extant taxa. This information is usually presented employing a mathematical tree – a structure wont to describe the evolutionary history of the taxa at a high level. These trees are available several different varieties and may be inferred in several alternative ways . there's an excellent amount of effort being put into methods of estimating trees, also as determining particular phylogenies for species of interest.
