Summary: 
We study a reconfiguration problem for Steiner trees in an unweighted graph, which determines whether there exists a sequence of Steiner trees that transforms a given Steiner tree into another one by exchanging a single edge at a time. In this paper, we show that the problem is PSPACE-complete even for split graphs, while solvable in linear time for interval graphs and for cographs.
