Computational heuristics are the primary methods for reconstruction of phylogenetic trees on large datasets. Most large-scale phylogenetic analyses produce numerous trees that are equivalent for some optimization criteria. Even using the best heuristics, it takes significant amount of time to obtain optimal trees in simulation experiments. When biological data are used, the score of the optimal tree is not known. As a result, the heuristics are either run for a fixed (long) period of time, ordoi:10.1007/978-3-540-30219-3_30 fatcat:st23urbytje75ilcgbm5vumuwi
