Rotating phylogenetic trees

Description
Whether a phylogeny is represented as a tree (A) or ladder (B), one can rotate at any node or any combination of nodes without changing the structure of the tree. Thus the leftmost tree shown in each row is identical from a phylogenetic perspective to the trees shown to the right. The colors indicate the nodes that were rotated in each case.
