Data from: Practical performance of tree comparison metrics

Mary K. Kuhner, Jon A. Yamato & Jon Yamato
The phylogenetic literature contains numerous measures for assessing differences between two phylogenetic trees. Individual measures have been criticized on various grounds, but little is known about their comparative performance in typical applications. We evaluate the performance of nine tree distance measures on two tasks: (1) distinguishing trees separated by lesser versus greater numbers of recombinations, and (2) distinguishing trees inferred with lower versus higher quality data. We find that when the trees being compared are...
