edge properties: distinguish between "supported by" and "traversed by" when referring to studies for an edge #155
I think that when an edge in the synthetic tree is traversed by a study, we list the study as supporting that edge. but if the edge is trivial in the study, then we should not refer to that as support.
An example is the edge leading to Biserrula (which is OTT ID 366947). The study/tree that is listed as supporting this edge only has one tip mapped to a species in Biserrula. The tree only has Biserrula pelecinus (ott ID 611049), so the tree doesn't really support (or contradict) the genus as a monophyletic group.
Oddly enough, when you look at the most terminal node for this genus, the edge to the species Biserrula pelecinus is not solid.
