Is there a term which can quantify how 'spread out' a particular character is on a tree? I want to distinguish between a character which is only restricted to a particular clade vs. a character that occurs all over the tree.
ETA: by 'all over' I meant it may be restricted to a few branches but those branches are spread out over the tree. It need not be ubiquitous. e.g. the character marked in blue on compared with the case where these three branches are in a small clade.
