The size of the MFAST found by our method on the Gymnosperms and Saxifragales datasets before and after post processing (phase three) for different number of taxa

The size of the MFAST found by running only the post processing step is also shown. We run our method on the entire dataset that contains all the taxa (last row) as well as randomly selected taxa subsets of size 100, 250 and 500. We repeated the 50, 100 and 250 taxa experiments 10 times by randomly selecting the taxa from the entire dataset and reported the average value.
