Rogue ('wildcard') taxa are leaves with uncertain phylogenetic
Their position may vary from tree to tree under inference methods that yield a
tree set (e.g. bootstrapping, Bayesian tree searches, maximum parsimony).
The presence of rogue taxa in a tree set can potentially remove all
information from a consensus tree. The information content of a consensus
tree - a function of its resolution and branch support values - can often be
increased by removing rogue taxa.
'Rogue' provides an explicitly information-theoretic approach to rogue
detection (Smith, forthcoming), and an interface to 'RogueNaRok'
(Aberer et al. 2013)
