The packages here include the base system and several specialized
packages (parsimony, likelihood, simulations, multivariate analysis,
coalescence). There are example data files. Please see the comments
on the page about publishing
results from Mesquite. Please email us ()
with questions or comments about downloading and installing Mesquite.
If you have previous versions of Mesquite already installed and
you have added third-party modules such as PDAP or TreeSetVis,
you might want to remove these modules from the old Mesquite_Folder
in preparation for moving them to the new Mesquite_Folder. On
the other hand you might want to download the newest version of
these third party modules for maximum compatibility.
Installation instructions and downloads for specific operating
systems can be found here:
There may be addenda or bug
fixes since the versions released above. We don't have a sophisticated
updating system in place yet; instead you may peruse the directory
listing of the various addenda/bug fixes. The ReadMe files will
explain the purpose of each addendum/bug fix. CHECK HERE
to see the directory listing of addenda and bug fixes.
