The folks at the Woods Hole Workshop on Molecular Evolution have posted a new version of the PAUP* GUI for Mac OSX. This link replaces one to an expired version of this GUI that was posted last year. If last year's version is any indication, it seems likely that this new version will expire at some point a few months from now. The new version of the GUI remains only partly functional and very buggy. Nevertheless, you may find it useful for some basic fuctions if you haven't yet learned how to use the fully-functional command line version of PAUP*. The link and the GUI executable itself are unsecured, though a line appears when you run the application saying "This version prepared for exclusive use fo authorized course participants." I'll start feeling guilty about using it as soon as I get the PAUP* manual I bought from Sinauer years ago.
Dechronization is authored by evolutionary biologists interested in the development and application of methods for estimating phylogeny and making phylogeny-based inferences. The goal of the blog is to provide a forum for discussion of the latest research and methods, while also providing anecdotes, tidbits of natural history, and other related information.
