Defines functions evol.distinct

Documented in evol.distinct

#Evolutionary distinctiveness by: 
#a) equal splits (Redding and Mooers 2006)
#b) fair proportions (Isaac et al., 2007)
#The scale option refers to whether or not the phylogeny should be scaled to a depth of 1 or, in the case of an ultrametric tree,  scaled such that branch lengths are relative.
#If use.branch.lengths=FALSE, then all branch lengths are changed to 1.
