Here's a link to a recent blog post in the Methods in Ecology and Evolution blog: https://methodsblog.wordpress.com/2016/01/22/biodiverse/
It provides some more details on the tree visualisations described in a previous blog post. http://biodiverse-analysis-software.blogspot.com.au/2014/10/new-tree-plots-in-biodiverse.html
It also has some details to the recently published range-weighted turnover paper (in early view at the time of writing):
Laffan, S.W., Rosauer, D.F., Di Virgilio, G., Miller, J.T.,
Gonzales-Orozco, C., Knerr, N., Thornhill, A. & Mishler, B.D. (in
press) Range-weighted metrics of species and phylogenetic turnover can
better resolve biogeographic breaks and boundaries. Methods in Ecology and Evolution.
