Phylogenetic Diversity on Split Networks

  title={Phylogenetic Diversity on Split Networks},
  author={Bui Quang Minh and Steffen Klaere and Arndt von Haeseler},
In biodiversity conservation, one is interested in selecting a subset of taxa for preservation priority. Phylogenetic diversity (PD) provides a quantitative measure for taxon selection on phylogenetic trees. In particular, PD is the total length of the minimal subtree induced by the selected taxa. Recently, it has been shown that on trees the maximal PD score and the corresponding subset of taxa can be computed by a greedy algorithm. However, if evolution is not treelike and networks are a more… CONTINUE READING
