    TreeView X is described as 'open source program to display phylogenetic trees on Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, and Windows platforms. It can read and display NEXUS and Newick format tree files (such as those output by PAUP*, '. There are five alternatives to TreeView X for Mac, Windows, Linux and Java. The best alternative is FigTree, which is both free and Open Source.
