MacClade is a computer program for graphic and interactive analysis of phylogeny and character evolution for Apple Macintosh computers. It displays a cladogram and "paints" the branches to indicate reconstructed character evolution. The user can manipulate cladograms on screen as MacClade gives diagnostic feedback. Systematics and other evolutionary biologists can use its flexible and analytical tools to examine phylogenies or interpret character evolution in a phylogenetic context, yet its ease of use should allow students to grasp phylogenetic principles in an interactive environment. This is chapters 3-6 of the user's manual.
