Impact of estimated constraint trees on NJMerge. Neighbor Joining (NJ) was run with two different distance matrices, and NJMerge was run with two different distance matrices and four different sets of constraint trees (see “Performance study” section for more information on the notation). Species tree estimation error is defined as the normalized Robinson–Foulds (RF) distance between true and estimated species trees. Note that gray bars represent medians, gray squares represent means, gray circles represent outliers, box plots are defined by quartiles (extending from the first to the third quartiles), and whiskers extend to plus/minus 1.5 times the interquartile distance (unless greater/less than the maximum/minimum value)
