Purpose

The Species Delimitation plugin for the Geneious bioinformatics software (www.geneious.com) is an exploratory tool that allows users to assess putative species in phylogenetic trees. The plugin summarises measures of phylogenetic support and diagnosability of species defined as user-selected collections of taxa, but it does not provide definitive support for species groups.
