The comparison of evolutionary trees is a fundamental problem in evolutionary biology. Different evolutionary hypotheses (or conflicting phylogenies) arise when different phylogenetic reconstruction methods are applied to the same data set, or when a single method is applied to different data sets (e.g. different genes). Several similarity metrics between evolutionary trees are currently in use [2]. In this paper, we study the quartet metric, which is based on common subtrees induced by four… CONTINUE READING
