I have done some restriction mapping and constructed cladograms using
Hennig86. I am not sure what the following values indicate:
i) consistency index - what for eg. does a ci value of 54 compared to
45 mean ?
ii) retention index - same question as above
iii) tree length - what for eg. does a tree length of 307 compared to
288 mean ? How does one "decide" what the best tree is - based on
tree length ?
Hope someone can help.
