I would recommend pruning the tree - otherwise PDAP will treat the removed characters as missing data and, depending on the topology of the tree, might give unexpected results or generate an error.

I would like to carry a global analysis (with all taxa) and then an analysis only with the taxa of one group (north distributed) and other with the taxa of the other group (south distributed). In the two latter cases should I prune the original phylogeny to my taxa of interest or should I leave all the taxa and eliminate the characters of the non analysed taxa from the character matrix?
