Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution

Ape provides functions for reading, writing, and plotting phylogenetic trees in parenthetic format (standard Newick format), analyses of comparative data in a phylogenetic framework, analyses of diversification and macroevolution, computing distances from allelic and nucleotide data, reading nucleotide sequences from GenBank via internet, and several tools such as Mantel's test, computation of minimum spanning tree, or the population parameter theta based on various approaches.
