This paper presents the main steps to reconstruct phylogenetic trees using an evolutionary algorithm with a wide range of alternative computational procedures for fitness evaluation and for tuning the search engine. Due to the fine equilibrium between exploration and exploitation of the search space, highquality reconstructions are obtained among an(More)
Phylogenetics can be described as finding a tree-like structure that defines certain ancestral relationships among a related set of attributes. Construction of phylogenetic trees (Weir, 1996) is one of the most important problems in evolutionary theory. The basic principle of tree reconstruction is to infer the evolutionary process of taxa (biological(More)
