Ancestral character states computed from the combination of phylogenetic trees with extrinsic traits are used to de
Reconstructing ancestral characters and traits along a phylogenetic tree is central to evolutionary biology.
The reconstruction of ancestral scenarios is widely used to study the evolution of characters along phylogenetic trees.
Phylogeny.fr, created in 2008, has been designed to facilitate the execution of phylogenetic workflows, and is nowadays widely used.
The transfer distance (TD) was introduced in the classification framework and studied in the context of phylogenetic tree matching.
