Fig. 4

The mean Spearman correlation coefficient obtained when using a decreasing number of features for training the algorithm on the 4200 starting trees. The box shows the quartiles of the dataset (thus the center is the median) while the whiskers extend to show the 1.5 × IQR past the low and high quartiles. The table at the bottom elaborates the feature composition within each set of features, as determined by the backward stepwise elimination procedure.
