Format

Details

For each of the 100 matrices generated by Congreve & Lamsdell (2016), I conducted phylogenetic analysis under different methods:

For each analysis, I recorded the strict consensus of all optimal trees, and also the consensus of trees that were suboptimal by a specified degree.

I then calculated, of the total number of quartets or partitions that were resolved in the reference tree, how many were the same or different in the tree that resulted from the phylogenetic analysis, and how many were not resolved in this tree (r2).

The data object contains a list whose elements are named after the methods, as listed above.

Each list entry is a three-dimensional array, whose dimensions are:

  1. The suboptimality of the tree. Different measures of node support are employed:

    Boot and Jack results are reported both as the frequency of splits among replicates, and using the gc (Groups Present / Contradicted) measure (Goloboff et al. 2003); frequency columns correspond to 100%, 97.5%, 95% ... 0% support; gc columns correspond to 100%, 95%, ... 0% present, 5%, 10%, ... 100% contradicted.

  2. Counts of the condition of each quartet or partition:

  3. The number of the matrix, from 1 to 100.
