How to use the template[change source]

This template is used for illustrating branching trees with the nodes and base labels being clickable links. They are especially suited to represent evolutionary trees.


{{clade
|label1=Base
|1=Node
}}

produces

Base

Node




{{clade
|1={{clade
   |label1=[[Subtree1]]
   |1=Leaf1
   |label2=Subtree2
   |2=Leaf2
   }}
}}

produces


Subtree1 

Leaf1


Subtree2 

Leaf2





{{clade| style=font-size:75%;line-height:75%
|1={{clade
   |label1=Subtree1
   |1=Leaf1
   |label2=Subtree2
   |2=Leaf2
   }}
}}

produces

Subtree2

Leaf2



Editing tip[change source]

An easy way of creating larger cladograms is to use the Newick format and proceed to edit it using a suitable text editor to produce the markup.

  1. Start with Newick format ((a,b),(c,d))
  2. Replace "(" with "{{clade|"
  3. Replace ")" with "}}"
  4. Edit to replace commas with pipes and numbers
  5. Edit clade labels if needed

{{clade
 |1={{clade
    |1=a
    |2=b
    }}
 |2={{clade
    |1=c
    |2=d
    }}
}}

Using a box[change source]

You can nest the templates and use links around the text. You may use non-breaking spaces <pre> </pre> to obtain spaces or to have labels that have spaces.

The entire cladogram can be placed in a box so that text flows nicely around it. enclose within {{userboxtop| toptext=<pre> </pre>}} {{userboxbottom}}
