A note on the path interval distance

, : A note on the path interval distance. Journal of Theoretical Biology 398: 145-149

The path interval distance accounts for global congruence between locally incongruent trees. We show that the path interval distance provides a lower bound for the nearest neighbor interchange distance. In contrast to the Robinson-Foulds distance, random pairs of trees are unlikely to be maximally distant from one another under the path interval distance. These features indicate that the path interval distance should play a role in phylogenomics where the comparison of trees on a fixed set of taxa is becoming increasingly important.

The delta plain of the Rhone shows many sandy beach ridges cropping out at the surface. We propose here a radiocarbon chronology for the accumulation of the sedimentary bodies and an interpretation of the morphology of the mouth lobes that they fo...
