Impact of estimated distance matrix on Neighbor Joining (NJ) and NJMerge. Neighbor Joining (NJ) was run with two different distance matrices, and NJMerge was run with two different distance matrices and constraint trees that agreed with the true species tree (see “Performance study” section for more information on the notation). Datasets had two different levels of incomplete lineage sorting (ILS) and numbers of genes varying from 25 to 1000. Species tree estimation error is defined as the normalized Robinson–Foulds (RF) distance between true and estimated species trees. Lines represent the average over replicate datasets, and filled regions indicate the standard error
