We show that for the Minimum Quartet Inconsistency problem, if the number of quartet errors is O(n), where n is the number of taxa under consideration, then it can be solved in polynomial time. This improves the previously-best algorithmic result saying that if the number of quartet errors is at most (n-3)/2 then the problem can be solved in polynomial time.
