Usage
## S3 method for class 'formula':
as.phylo(x, data = parent.frame(), ...)

Taxonomic variables must be nested and passed in the correct order: the higher clade must be on the left of the formula, for instance ~Order/Family/Genus/Species. In most cases, the resulting tree will be unresolved and contain polytomies.
