A clip from the Phylip documentation:


MacClade was written by Wayne  Maddison  and  David  Maddison  of  the
University  of  Arizona.  All distribution is by Sinauer Associates, Sunderland
Massachusetts 01375, USA.  Their phone number is: (413) 665  3722,  FAX:  (413)
665  7292.   A  disk with program, help file, and example data files, plus book
(which has about 100 pages of intro to phylogenetic theory, and  250  pages  of
program  instructions),  is  $75  U.S. ($40 for the book alone).  Site licenses
also available.   An earlier and less capable  Version  2  (which  for  example
cannot  read  nucleic  acid  sequences  and  has  fewer  features  for discrete
characters) is also available by anonymous  ftp(/gopher)  


If you want to obtain the earlier version or a demo version of MacClade 3.0
point your gopher client at merlot and select the following:

 -->  13. Search Databases at Hopkins (Vectors, Promoters, NRL-3D, EST, OMIM../

    -->  15. Search BOING (Bio Oriented INternet Gophers) <?>

And search for - 


And you will see:

 -->  1.  macclade21.hqx.
      2.  macclade30_demo.hqx.
      3.  macclade.hqx.

Number 1 is the old (not nearly so powerful) version and Number 2 is a
demo version of MacClade 3.0.

Best of luck,
