Building species phylogenies from genome data requires the evaluation of phylogenetic evidence from independent gene loci. We propose an approach to do this using consensus networks. We compare gene trees for eight yeast genomes and show that consensus networks have potential for helping to visualize contradictory evidence for species phylogenies.
