Cladistics and phylogenetic reconstruction are difficult subjects for biology students to learn when taught from conventional textbooks. This interactive CD provides students with a complete self-study, introductory course in phylogenetic reconstruction using cladistic analysis. Including animated sequences, questions at the end of each section, and practical exercises, it is the first exclusively pedagogical CD-ROM devoted to the topic. Students who finish the course should have a basic understanding of cladistics and the reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships from morphological and molecular data.
