Here's a version of how I handled that thing on my dendrograms. Basically,
it involves replacing the leaf labels with Styles, and then making the plot.
For example, my "formattedTogetherLabels" below takes the original labels
("togetherLabels" here), turns the ones which are numbers to small, black
labels, and those which are strings starting with "Ishi" to have blue text,
and light-blue, slightly transparent backgrounds. Of course, you can
generalize to any number of different styles. Once that expression is done,
just issue the usual DendrogramPlot command, with the option of:
LeafLabels -> formattedTogetherLabels
formattedTogetherLabels = Text[
Style[#, Black, Smaller],
Style[#, Darker@ Blue,
Background -> Directive[Darker@Blue, Opacity[0.2]], Smaller],
True, Style[#, Black, Smaller]]
] & /@ togetherLabels;
Eventually, I'll post how I make a dendrogram and have Mathematica
pull the graphics apart, and then you can apply styles (coloring, line
styles, etc.) to the different branches.
Hope that helps!
