Tree of Life Web Project

Service Provider Description
The Tree of Life is a collaborative web project, produced by
biologists from around the world. On more than 2000 World Wide Web
pages, the Tree of Life provides information about the diversity of
organisms on Earth, their history, and characteristics. Each page
contains information about one group of organisms (for example, the
Coleoptera page gives information about all beetles, the Salticidae
page about jumping spiders, the Cephalopoda page about squids, octopi,
and related molluscs, and the Fungi page about fungi). Individual Tree
of Life pages are linked one to another in the form of the
evolutionary tree that connects all organisms, with the pages
branching off from a group's page being about subgroups.
