In Francis and Steel (2015), it was shown that there exists non-trivial networks on $4$ leaves upon which the distance metric affords a metric on a tree which is not the base tree of the network. In this paper we extend this result in two directions. We show that for any tree $T$ there exists a family of non-trivial HGT networks $N$ for which the distance metric $d_N$ affords a metric on $T$. We additionally provide a class of networks on any number of leaves upon which the distance metric… 


A distance metric for a class of tree-sibling phylogenetic networks
A distance measure on the class of semi-binary tree-sibling time consistent phylogenetic networks, which generalize tree-child time consistent evolutionary networks, and thus also galled-trees, which can be computed in polynomial time by means of simple algorithms.
Tree-like reticulation networks--when do tree-like distances also support reticulate evolution?
Phylogenetic Networks - Concepts, Algorithms and Applications
This book provides the first interdisciplinary overview of phylogenetic networks, beginning with a concise introduction to both phylogenetic trees and phylogenetic Networks, and presenting the fundamental concepts and results for both rooted and unrooted phylogenetics networks.

Modular networks and cumulative impact of lateral transfer in prokaryote genome evolution
These results indicate that, on average, at least 81 ± 15% of the genes in each genome studied were involved in lateral gene transfer at some point in their history, even though they can be vertically inherited after acquisition, uncovering a substantial cumulative effect of lateral geneTransfer on longer evolutionary time scales.
Horizontal gene transfer, genome innovation and evolution
It is suggested that for many prokaryotes, the boundaries between species are fuzzy, and therefore the principles of population genetics must be broadened so that they can be applied to higher taxonomic categories.

Findings in this work indicate that lateral gene transfer frequently occurs in protists with phagotrophic lifestyles, possibly with rates comparable to prokaryotic organisms, and have implications for eukaryotic genomic research in general, and studies of the origin and phylogeny of eucaryotes in particular.
