Phylogenetic diversity metric review

This is an overview of alpha and beta phylogenetic diversity metrics. I only included metrics that quantify diversity using genetic distances or branch lengths. This excludes things like Martin’s (2002) P-test, which does look at phylogenetic clustering but is based on tree topology (number of nodes between organisms rather than branch lengths).
