Table 3 Parameters varied in the simulations

From: Accuracy of phylogeny reconstruction methods combining overlapping gene data sets

Parameter Options
Data set S: small
  L: large
Taxa coverage c: complete
  m: missing
True gene trees E: subtrees of species tree
  R α : rate of evolution assigned randomly from a Γ-distribution with parameter α (i.e., mean 1 and variance 1/α )
  P: substitution parameters and branch lengths gene-specific
  G: trees gene-specific
  T θ : trees random by coalescent process with parameter θ
Reconstructed e: equal to true gene trees
gene trees n: normal sequence length and ML estimation
