I suppose you could average the distance matrices, getting a distance matrix, and then apply hierarchical clustering... or threshold the average distance matrix at a sequence of values and compute connected components for each... that sounds like it's in the spirit of a "majority-rule consensus tree" though I don't know what that is.

Dear Listers,

I emailed the list a few days ago about how to bootstrap a community matrix (species by sites) and get a consensus tree with node support. A friend pointed out that a similar question remained unanswered in 2004. I wish to re-word my question: is anyone aware of a package / method to obtain a majority-rule consensus tree from x distance matrices ? Is anyone using R to generate phylogenetic trees with node support ?

thanks for your time and consideration,
Eric P.
