How to navigate in tree space: learning to generate clade names and computable clade definitions (phyloreferences) for the Tree of Life.

Integrating biological data with phylogenies has become a challenge, especially in view of very large syntheses.  This is primarily due to the arbitrary approach we take to associate traditional names and tree nodes. In this workshop we will: 1) briefly introduce the rationale for generating clade names; 2) learn about the minimum requirements needed to generate the various types of phylogenetic definitions; 3) learn how to enter clade definitions into RegNum, which is the international repository of clade names.
