Simulating trees…. … a tricky task !? Tanja Gernhard, Klaas Hartmann . Why simulations?. How do typical trees look like under a specific model of speciation? expected Colless value? expected gamma value, LTT plot? p-values for statistical testing?.
… a tricky task !?
Tanja Gernhard, Klaas Hartmann
Even simple models hard to analyze analytically!
Simulate until n species are obtained.
Stop at following speciation or extinction event.
Example for n=5 species:
