ATTENTION: The algorithm introduced in this paper is for the maximum agreement forest (MAF) problem (see how this problem is formally defined in the paper). WE DO NOT CLAIM that the algorithm is for the problem of calculating the rSPR or TBR distance between two trees. The relation between the MAF problem and these other problems were addressed by others. At least two different sets of authors have recently stated that our algorithm was proposed for the TBR or rSPR distance and that it has some flaws in the sense that it is not a 3-approximation for these problems. However, all we say in the paper is that we present a 3-approximation for the MAF problem (as defined in the paper). A full version containing the results of this paper and other new results, implementations, comparisons, etc may be found in a paper with the same authors that appeared in Theor. Comput. Sci. (see the journal list above).
