Treevolution is a Java tool to support visual analysis of phylogenetic trees. Some of its current features are:

* Visualization of phylogenetic trees as radial or linear dendrograms
* Visualization of bar charts for dendrograms
* Several exploration interfaces: distortion, filtering, text search, ancestor/descendants tracking, etc.
* Visual clustering of families based on evolutionary information

Treevolution was developed and is maintained by the VisUsal group at the University of Salamanca by Rodrigo Santamaría and Roberto Therón, in collaboration with Luis Quintales. Special thanks to Antonio Hernández for his code contribution.
