Tree of Life

In continuation of Darwin’s birthday celebration, I wanted to pass this along.

Darwin, in his Origin of Species, not only provided an elegant explanation of the variety of life on this planet, but began to illustrate how life is connected. Since then, advances in the biological sciences have continued to provide evidence for the interconnectedness of all life, and is illustrated here, in this “Tree of Life.”

For more information, and for a larger poster-sized .pdf of this diagram, visit the BBC.
