Arguments

phy

Details

The group of tips specified in ‘group’ may be non-monophyletic (paraphyletic or polyphyletic), in which case all edges from the tips to their most recent common ancestor are identified.

The identification is made with the indices of the rows of the matrix ‘edge’ of the tree.
