Metrics and Models of Community Phylogenetics

Community phylogenetics combines ideas from community ecology and evolutionary biology, using species’ phylogeny to explore the processes underlying ecological community assembly. Here we describe the development of the field’s comparative methods and their roots in conservation biology, biodiversity quantification, and macroevolution. Next, we review the multitude of community phylogenetic structure metrics and place each into one of four classes: shape, evenness, dispersion, and dissimilarity.
