  • Tree of life
  • Ambitious project worth browsing but a work in
  • The Tree of Life Web Project is a collection of
    information about biodiversity compiled
    collaboratively by hundreds of expert and
    amateurs. Its goal is to contain a page with
    pictures, text, and other information for every
    species and for each group of organisms, living
    or extinct. Connections between Tree of Life web
    pages follow phylogenetic branching patterns
    between groups of organisms, so visitors can
    browse the hierarchy of life and learn about
    phylogeny and evolution as well as the
    characteristics of individual groups.
