November 2020iiiAbstractIn this thesis, newly developed distance-based methods to infer a species tree fromgene family trees are studied.The methods are based on species distances as calculated from the respective genefamily trees. The distances from the gene family trees are merged via the novel NJst+,mini, and tagging methods into a single distance matrix each which summarises allpairwise distances among the spe...
