Given a series of trees, this function returns the consensus tree. By
default, the strict-consensus tree is computed. To get the
majority-rule consensus tree, use
p = 0.5. Any value between
0.5 and 1 can be used.
consensus(..., p = 1, check.labels = TRUE)
- either (i) a single object of class
"phylo", (ii) a series of such objects separated by commas, or (iii) a list containing such objects.
- a numeric value between 0.5 and 1 giving the proportion for a clade to be represented in the consensus tree.
- a logical specifying whether to check the labels
of each tree. If
FALSE(the default), it is assumed that all trees have the same tip labels, and that they are in the same order (see details).
check.labels = FALSE results in
considerable decrease in computing times. This requires that all
trees have the same tip labels, and these labels are
ordered similarly in all trees (in other words, the element
tip.label are identical in all trees).
- an object of class
