Subsplit() removes leaves from a Splits object.

Subsplit(splits, tips, keepAll = FALSE, unique = TRUE)

Arguments

splits

An object of class Splits.

tips

A vector specifying a subset of the leaf labels applied to split.

keepAll

logical specifying whether to keep entries that define trivial splits (i.e. splits of zero or one leaf) on the subset of leaves.

unique

logical specifying whether to remove duplicate splits.

Value

Subsplit() returns an object of class Splits, defined on the leaves tips.
