Figure 2

Phylogenetic tree reconciliations proposed by LatTrans, HorizStory, and EEEP. Different sets of edit operations, indicated by arrows marked A through E, are proposed to reconcile the reference tree (a) with either a rooted (b) or an unrooted (c) test tree. As described in the main text, LatTrans proposes edits A and B, while HorizStory proposes these two as well as the phantom sister edit C. EEEP with time constraints will propose edits A, B, D, and E, while removing the time constraint allows donation of genetic material from ancestor to descendant, which is analogous to edit C.
