Phylogenetic network

Jump to: navigation, search

A phylogenetic network is any graph used to visualize evolutionary relationships between species or organisms. It is employed when reticulate events such as hybridization, horizontal gene transfer, recombination, or gene duplication and loss are believed to be involved. Phylogenetic trees are a subset of phylogenetic networks. Phylogenetic networks can be inferred and visualised with software such as SplitsTree.
