PAUP* is a new release of the software package for inference of evolutionary trees, for use in Macintosh, Windows, UNIX/VMS, or DOS-based formats. The influence of high-speed computer analysis of molecular, morphological and/or behavioral data to infer phylogenetic relationships has expanded well beyond its central role in evolutionary biology, now encompassing applications in areas as diverse as conservation biology, ecology, and forensic studies. The success of previous versions of PAUP: Phylogenetic Analysis Using Parsimony has made it the most widely used software package for the inference of evolutionary trees.
