Phylogenetic signal for binomial and lognormal families

Hi there,

I am using brms to run models including phylogenetic signal and I was wondering how can I determine lambda with other families than gaussian, in my case binomial and lognormal.

Thanks in advance,


Welcome to the forum. Sorry for taking so long to respond.

Most people on this forum are not experts on phylogenetics and even those who are [like me] might not work with comparative methods. Can you share more information, for instance how \lambda is defined? Then we can try and help you gauge whether that is “extractable” from brms output.
