MacClade 4: analysis of phy-logeny and character evolution
MacClade is a computer program that provides theory and tools for the graphic and interactive analysis of molecular and morphological data, phylogeny, and character evolution, yet its ease of use allows beginning students to grasp phylogenetic principles in an interactive environment.
Macclade: Analysis of Phylogeny and Character Evolution/Version 3
Part I Introducing MacClade: introduction - a tutorial overview of MacClades and an introduction to phylogeny reconstructing character evolution using parsimony stratigraphic parsimony.
The discovery and importance of multiple islands of most
The set of most-parsimonious trees for a data matrix may include several distinct classes (islands) of trees, and trees in different islands may have different implications for character evolution, and for this reason should be sought.
NEXUS: an extensible file format for systematic information.
The goals of the format are to allow future expansion, to include diverse kinds of information, to be independent of particular computer operating systems, and to be easily processed by a program.

Interactive analysis of phylogeny and character evolution using the computer program MacClade.
The computer program MacClade is described here is the computer program, designed for interactive analysis of character evolution and phylogeny, which has extensive facilities for editing data, displaying various summaries of character Evolution in charts and diagrams, and printing.
The beetle tree of life reveals that Coleoptera survived end‐Permian mass extinction to diversify during the Cretaceous terrestrial revolution
A phylogeny of beetles based on DNA sequence data from eight nuclear genes, including six single‐copy nuclear protein‐coding genes, for 367 species representing 172 of 183 extant families provides a uniquely well‐resolved temporal and phylogenetic framework for studying patterns of innovation and diversification in Coleoptera.
