Phylogenetic Trees Made Easy

A How-To Manual

Fifth Edition

Barry G. Hall

  • "Learn More" boxes present background on the various concepts and methods.
  • Files needed for working through the tutorials in the text, as well as additional software that facilitates some of the methods discussed, are provided on a Companion Website.

New to this Edition:

  • The release of this edition was prompted by the development of a new version of the phylogenetic software MEGA, and takes into account the new capabilities present in MEGA7
  • Three new chapters (Minimum Spanning Trees; Time Trees; and Estimating Phylogenetic Trees from Whole Genome Sequences) address important advanced topics
  • Three new Appendices discuss text editors, the many command-line programmes that are available, and facilitating the installation of those programmes in the Windows, Mac, and Linux environments
  • New screen shots throughout show the current versions of all software. These illustrations are in full colour, enabling readers to more easily identify elements in which colour plays an important informational role
