Summary of responses to question about metrics for density in phylogenetic trees

I posted a question to Twitter and Facebook about metrics for assessing density in a phylogenetic tree. Here is a “Storification” of the responses. Thanks for the help all.
Any other suggestions welcome in comments … http://storify.com/phylogenomics/metrics-to-quantify-density-of-taxa-sampling-in-a.js?template=slideshow[View the story “Metrics to quantify density of taxa/sampling in a phylogenetic tree” on Storify]

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
