Two good references reviewing phylogenetic tree construction methods are:
Felsenstein J. (1988) Phylogenies from molecular sequences:
infererence and reliability. Ann. Rev. Genet. 22:521-565.
Swofford D.L. & Olson G.J. (1990) Phylogeny Reconstruction.
In: Molecular Systematics (eds. Hillis D.M. & Moritz C.).
Sunderland, MA. pp411-501.
Further discussion about phylogenetic tree methods (as opposed to
software) should perhaps move to "bionet.molbio.evolution" newsgroup.
