Phylogenetic diversity calculators

Hi Pat and everyone,

Some day when you’re sitting on a bunch of free time… it’d be so great to be able to calculate (or rarefy) some of the phylogenetic alpha-diversity metrics from inside MOTHUR.

Thanks a million!


Just got added last release!

Always one step ahead…

This page doesn’t actually describe the background or provide a citation for the method.
Is this the metric of:
Faith. 1992. Conservation evaluation and phylogenetic diversity.


I’m pretty sure that’s the one.
