Qualitative measures requiring a rooted split system:

- Bray-Curtis (aka: Sorensen, PhyloSor, Dice's index, pairwise Whittaker)
- Canberra
- Coefficient of similarity
- Euclidean
- Gower
- Kulczynski (aka: Kulczynski-Cody, Sokal-Sneath)
- Lennon compositional difference
- Manhattan (aka: Hamming distance)
- Soergel (aka: unweighted UniFrac, Jaccard)
- Tamas coefficient (TC) (aka: simple matching coefficient)
- Weighted correlation

Quantitative measures requiring a rooted split system (use -w flag):

- Weighted correlation
- Yue-Clayton (aka: similarity ratio)

Root-invariant quantitative measures (use -w flag):
