I have a question on Pagels Lambda.
In my study, I use both continious and binary functional traits. I have
succeded in calculating the lambda for my continious traits linked to a BEAST
phylogeny, using the code from Liam Revells blog.
Q1: Am I right if I say the lambda cannot be used on binary traits? Might the
statistic D can be useful instead?
Q2: I am asked to calculate the lambda on a tree prossessed with MrBayes. This
tree was made to visualize the length of the branches, and is not linked to any
trait values at the tips. I think Pagels Lambda is useless for this purpose,
but I'm not 100 % sure. Should I re-run the analysis in MrBayes with tip values?
