Areas of high conservation value at risk by plant invaders in Georgia under climate change

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5938453
PMID: 29760885

[…] Georgian endemics (n = 279) and the selected georeferenced endemics (n = 114) with the online program Phylomatic (Webb & Donoghue, ) and calculated the branch lengths for both trees with the program Phylocom Version 4.2 (Webb et al., ). We then calculated the mean pairwise distance (mpd) of the selected 114 endemic plants with the “picante” package (Blomberg, Garland & Ives, ; Kembel et al., ) in […]


Disentangling the role of floral sensory stimuli in pollination networks

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5847531
PMID: 29531220
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03448-w

[…] Plant phylogeny was built with the online software Phylomatic v.3 (tree R20120829). We used ‘bladj’ algorithm in the software Phylocom v.4.2 (ref. ) in order to adjust branch lengths of the phylogeny so as to correspond to evolutionary divergence time between clades, using the most recently updated node ages. The phylogram o […]


Social status and parasitism in male and female vertebrates: a meta analysis

[…] ed divergence times from additional primary literature (Table ). We built ultrametric trees using the R package ape (version 3.4,) and adjusted node ages for published divergence times using BLADJ in Phylocom 4.2. […]


Partitioning the regional and local drivers of phylogenetic and functional diversity along temperate elevational gradients on an East Asian peninsula

[…] l band. Finally, the γ component was quantified in each elevational band of each transect. The COMSTRUCT function for the α and γ components and the COMDIST function for the β components were used in Phylocom 4.2. We used the phylogenetic trees and trait dendrograms described in “Phylogenetic tree and functional trait dendrogram” to calculate the components of both dispersions.One of the main aims […]


Phylogenetic classification of the world’s tropical forests

[…] disjunct species occurrences in the phylogeny of Zanne et al. () were placed at the most basal node connecting the disjunct species. This phylogeny was subsequently dated using the BLADJ function in Phylocom v4.2 (), using taxon ages given in Magallón et al. () for the age file. […]


Functional and phylogenetic diversity determine woody productivity in a temperate forest

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5838064
PMID: 29531662
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3857

[…] ch lengths were estimated for this “super‐tree” based on the time of the angiosperm‐wide divergence. Undated nodes were interpolated using the algorithm of the branch length adjustment (BLADJ) in the Phylocom software (Webb, Ackerly, & Kembel, ). The PD was calculated as the sum of the branch lengths for the species present in a particular quadrat. As a consequence, the PD was influenced not only […]
