Parsimony via consensus.
, and .
Syst Biol 57 (2): 251-256 (October 2008)

The parsimony score of a character on a tree equals the number of state changes required to fit that character onto the tree. We show that for unordered, reversible characters this score equals the number of tree rearrangements required to fit the tree onto the character. We discuss implications of this connection for the debate over the use of consensus trees or total evidence and show how it provides a link between incongruence of characters and recombination.
