Drop tips or extract clade from tree with mapped discrete character


This function drops one or multiple tips from the modified "phylo" object with a mapped binary or multistate trait (see read.simmap) while maintaining the matrix $mapped.edge and list of mappings by branch maps. This function is equivalent to drop.tip but for a tree with a mapped discrete character.

extract.clade.simmap is functionally equivalent to extract.clade but preserves discrete character mappings on the tree.


drop.tip.simmap(tree, tip, ...)
extract.clade.simmap(tree, node)



a modified object of class "phylo" (see read.simmap).


name or names of species to be dropped.


node number for the root node of the clade to be extracted.


optional arguments. Currently the logical argument untangle which if set to TRUE will call untangle before returning the "simmap" object to the user.


A modified object of class "phylo" containing the elements maps and $mapped.edge with the time spent in each state along each edge of the tree.
