Description

The R function used to assemble hierarchical relationships ("trees") from workflow used in the manuscript is provided. The Hemiptera data set provided shows how data entry is organized in a simple two-column table, with all taxa and higher clades listed exactly once in the left column, and all higher nodes (non-tips) listed at least once in the right column. The "build-tree-script" demonstrates how the data set and custom function are combined in practice to produce a usable tree.
