Questions Is phylogenetic diversity (PD) an accurate surrogate for functional diversity (FD. [...] Key Method We examined correlations between ten FD and PD indices, among which several were shown to be connected using our mathematical partitioning approach and several were transformed by comparison with null models to control for effects of co-factors. In doing this, FD values were calculated using simulated trait values with varying phylogenetic signal.Expand
