Dear DendroPy users,
I was wondering about how to perform the following task. Given a phylogeny and a taxon, I want to list all other taxa within a given distance from my taxon. I am aware of the patristic distance function that DendroPy offers. However I do not want to use branch length to find nearby species, only the number of 'hops' (number of nodes between the two taxa).
Any idea how to do this? Did I miss this simple function in the documentation?
