ape 5.0: an environment for modern phylogenetics and evolutionary analyses in R

Emmanuel Paradis, Klaus Schliep

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Summary: After more than fifteen years of existence, the R package ape has continuously grown its contents, and has been used by a growing community of users. The release of version 5.0 has marked a leap towards a modern software for evolutionary analyses. Efforts have been put to improve efficiency, flexibility, support for 'big data' (R's long vectors), ease of use and quality check before a new release. These changes will hopefully make ape a useful software for the study of biodiversity and evolution in a context of increasing data quantity.

Availability and implementation: ape is distributed through the Comprehensive R Archive Network: http://cran.r-project.org/package=ape. Further information may be found at http://ape-package.ird.fr/.
