I have accessed the Ensembl Species Tree generated for use in Phylowidget by the Compara team (which includes all the current species for the main Ensembl website, plus a few additional mammalian species of interest).

However, I cant find out what the branch lengths represent (number of substitutions per site? PAM units?) and how they were calculated?

Thanks very much for any help.
