Libeskind-Hadas, Ran. “Tree Reconciliation Methods for Host-Symbiont Cophylogenetic Analyses.” Life, vol. 12, issue 3, 2022, 443.

Abstract: Phylogenetic reconciliation is a fundamental method in the study of pairs of coevolving species. This paper provides an overview of the underlying theory of reconciliation in the context of host-symbiont cophylogenetics, identifying some of the major challenges to users of these methods, such as selecting event costs and selecting representative reconciliations. Next, recent advances to address these challenges are discussed followed by a discussion of several established and recent software tools.
