BAMM (Bayesian Analysis of Macroevolutionary Mixtures) is a program for modeling complex dynamics of speciation, extinction, and trait evolution on phylogenetic trees.

BAMM is oriented entirely towards detecting and quantifying heterogeneity in evolutionary rates. It uses reversible jump Markov chain Monte Carlo to automatically explore a vast universe of candidate models of lineage diversification and trait evolution. BAMM and associated methods have been described and extended in several publications (PLoS ONE 2014 , Nature Communications 2013 , Systematic Biology 2014, and Evolution 2015). BAMM is a command line program written in C++. Post-run analysis and visualization is performed using the R package BAMMtools.
