5 Construction of a Median Joining Evolutionary Network Traditionally, the most common way to present evolutionary relationships among homologous sequences is by constructing a phylogenetic tree in the form of a bifurcating tree structure. The phylogenetic tree construction generally assumes that evolution proceeds in a simplistic tree-like fashion. However, the method may not adequately represent the evolutionary history of a population in which events such as recombination, convergent evolution, and microevolution may have taken place.
