For groups that were recovered as paraphyletic in the phylogenetic analysis, uses the Fish Tree of Life API to identify which species prevented that clade from being recovered as monophyletic.

fishtree_rogues(rank)

Arguments

rank

the (possibly paraphyletic) rank for which rogue or intruder species should be identified.

Value

A vector of species names, potentially empty.
