/Does anybody know of software which will plot phylogenic trees given the standa
/rd nested parenthesis tree data? I'm generating the tree with the protpars pro
/gram from PHYLIP and plotting it with drawtree from PHYLIP however drawtree ten
/ds to print the name of one species on top of the other if the branch tips are
/close together. It is an unrooted tree.
I get around this problem with Drawtree by writing the output file
in HPGL format with *no* labels, converting it to a vector drawing format
with the ms-dos program Hijaak, reading it into a drawing program on the pc
and adding the labels myself. I can also add figure titles and so forth at
the same time. The dendrograms look great when printed on a laser printer.
I don't have the address at hand of the people who make Hijaak, but if
there is interest, I can get it in a couple of days.
