Tree of Life Web Project
Entry ID: ToL-WP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists from
around the world. On more than 4000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides
information about the diversity of organisms on Earth, their evolutionary
history (phylogeny), and characteristics.

Each page contains information about a particular group of organisms (e.g.,
echinoderms, tyrannosaurs, phlox flowers, cephalopods, club fungi, or the
salamanderfish of Western Australia). ToL pages are linked one to another
hierarchically, in the form of the evolutionary tree of life. Starting with the
root of all Life on Earth and moving out along diverging branches to individual
species, the structure of the ToL project thus illustrates the genetic
connections between all living things.
