COMPARE analyzes interspecific data in an evolutionary context. It applies several Phylogenetic Comparative Methods (e.g., independent contrasts, spatial autocorrelation, phylogenetic GLS, phylogenetic mixed model), and can conduct phylogenetic randomization tests (i.e., to generate random phylogenies, branch lengths, or interspecific data on a phylogeny).

Run COMPARE!

Requires Java, and adding http://www.indiana.edu/~martinsl/compare/v46b/compare.html to exceptions in Java Console.

Here is a lab exercise illustrating some of the things you can do with COMPARE. See FAQ also for suggestions.

Please note that there are several known bugs in COMPARE, particularly in descriptive output, such as the "Plot Points" function. We no longer have any funding to maintain or to develop COMPARE, and are unlikely to fix these soon. Although the bugs we know about are unlikely to mislead a serious researcher, the program should still be used with some caution.
