phangorn: Phylogenetic Reconstruction and Analysis

Allows for estimation of phylogenetic trees and networks using Maximum Likelihood, Maximum Parsimony, distance methods and Hadamard conjugation (Schliep 2011). Offers methods for tree comparison, model selection and visualization of phylogenetic networks as described in Schliep et al. (2017).
