Most phylogenetic analyses result in a sample of trees, but summarizing and visualizing these samples can be challenging. Consensus trees often provide limited information about a sample, and so methods such as consensus networks, clustering and multidimensional scaling have been developed and applied to tree samples. This paper describes a stochastic algorithm for constructing a principal geodesic or line through treespace which is analogous to the first principal component in standard… CONTINUE READING
