Studying the shape of phylogenetic trees under different random models is an important issue in evolutionary biology. In this paper, we propose a general framework for deriving detailed statistical results for patterns in phylogenetic trees under the Yule-Harding model and the uniform model, two of the most fundamental random models considered in phylogenetics. Our framework will unify several recent studies which were mainly concerned with the mean value and the variance. Moreover, refined… CONTINUE READING
