Editorial Reviews

Review

"A solid supplementary teaching tool for undergraduates and for general readers wishing to get a better understanding of modern evolutionary theory and methodology. Highly recommended." Choice

"This is a useful learning tool ... [and] it will be a valuable addition to courses in phylogenetics (or cladistics)." The Quarterly Review of Biology

"...perhaps the best widely available tool for teaching introductory cladistics."

Book Description

Cladistics and phylogenetic reconstruction are subjects which biology students find quite difficult to grasp when taught from conventional textbooks. This CD provides students with a complete self-study introductory course in phylogenetic reconstruction using cladistic analysis. The CD is fully interactive and includes animated sequences, questions at the end of each section, and practical exercises. It is the first exclusively pedagogical CD-ROM devoted to this topic. By the end of the course students should have a basic understanding of cladistics and the reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships from morphological and molecular data.

Format: Hardcover
I highly recommended this item, specially as a introductory course for the Phylogenetic Systematics. It's easily to understand and allow step to step to know the theory and practice of the Cladistics.

I bought the product knowing it was without the CD. However, when I received it, I just had to spend a few minutes to realize that, without the CD, it is almost useless...
