R package implementing the Total Cophenetic Index measure of Mir *et al.* (2013). This package is now simply a wrapper for the function `TotalCopheneticIndex()`

in the package ‘TreeTools’.

The total cophenetic index describes how balanced a phylogenetic tree is, by measuring the how deep the most recent common ancestor of each pair of leaves lies within the tree.

This functionality is now available via the function `TotalCopheneticIndex()`

in the ‘TreeTools’ package, and via Rotger’s (unmaintained?) package ‘CollessLike’.
