Calculate the size or phylogenetic information content (Steel & Penny 2006) of the maximum agreement subtree between two phylogenetic trees, i.e. the largest tree that can be obtained from both tree1 and tree2 by deleting, but not rearranging, leaves, using the algorithm of Valiente (2009).

MASTSize(tree1, tree2 = tree1, rooted = TRUE)

MASTInfo(tree1, tree2 = tree1, rooted = TRUE)

Arguments

tree1, tree2

Trees of class phylo, or lists of such trees to undergo pairwise comparison.

rooted

Logical specifying whether to treat the trees as rooted.

Value

MASTSize() returns an integer specifying the number of leaves in the maximum agreement subtree.

MASTInfo() returns a vector or matrix listing the phylogenetic information content, in bits, of the maximum agreement subtree.

Details

Implemented for trees with up to 4096 tips. Contact the maintainer if you need to process larger trees.
