 We show the average Spearman's rank correlation coefficient between different statistics and the FN error rates of trees generated around each of the six estimated supertrees for the 500taxon model conditions. For each of the six estimated supertrees, 100 trees were generated using a pECR move, for a total of 606 trees (600 pECR trees plus 6 supertrees) per replicate. MRP score is the MP score of the estimated tree with respect to the MRP matrix. MRL score is the negative loglikelihood score of the estimated tree with respect to the MRP matrix. SumFN is the sum of the bipartitions in the source trees not present in the estimated tree divided by the total number bipartitions in the source trees. Coefficients with larger magnitude represent stronger correlation between the test statistic and FN error rates. The largest correlation coefficient for each scaffold density is shown in bold.
