Statistical parsimony networks constructed for simulated dataset 'Sim21' using TCS with the 95% confidence criterion enforced. A: full dataset (i.e., 100 sequences from 50 diploid genotypes). B: pruned dataset with five unresolved genotypes omitted. Ovals are distinct haplotypes and are drawn proportional to haplotype frequency. Each single line represents one mutational step, and small circles dividing single lines are inferred haplotypes that were not present in the dataset. A rectangle indicates the haplotype with the highest outgroup probability in each network. In this particular case, both the 0.90 and 0.60 PHASE thresholds produced identical outcomes.
