Re: Need help doing phylogenetic analyses
Hi everyone. This is directed to those of you who use PAUP to perform
phylogenetic analyses. I do as well, but since I have a new beta version, I
don't have a manual yet. I can perform analyses just fine, but I need to
know how to find out which characters support which clade in the trees that
are generated. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Assuming that I've interpreted the question right, I'd suggest
MacClade, if you don't have it already; you'll be able to map the fit
of each character to the tree, and see the synapomorphies supporting
each node. If this is useful, I'll dig up the way to get hold of it,
and post that as well.
