Table 2 A summary of the properties of the different characters of the suggested phylogenies

From: Reconstruction of real and simulated phylogenies based on quartet plurality inference

  Classification by phylum Classification by order
QP1 tree Tree is not perfect. One leaf misplaced Tree is perfect
COG tree Tree is not perfect. Eight leaves misplaced Tree is not perfect. One leaf misplaced
Ribosomal protein tree Tree is perfect Tree is perfect
  1. A tree can either be perfect (i.e., induce a perfect separation with respect to the relevant character) or not, in which case the number of taxa needed to be replaced in order to make the tree perfect is indicated. We see that the ribosomal protein tree is perfect with respect to both characters, and that the QP1 tree is perfect apart from one misplaced taxon
