Arguments

tree

A phylo object

Details

The only purpose of this function is to make an aesthetically-pleasing graphic of one's tree, where branches are color-coded with a rainbow palette, relative to their depth. Depth is defined relative to the number of branching nodes between the basal node of a branch and the root, not the absolute distance (i.e. branch length) to the root or the distance from the tips.

Value

No value returned, just plots a colorful phylogeny.
