Tree of Life

Healthy Home Gardening

On pages that have been identified, (Plants, fungus, animals), there will be a horizontal column showing the genetic lineage of the species, this collumn can be found on the lower left of it's page. At the top of this column, will be a link called "Compare Species". Clicking this link will add the species to your list. There is a maximum of 10 species that you can add to your list.

View the video above for clearer instructions.

Once you have a few species added to your list, a row of images appears at the top of every page, and now you can compare them phylogenetically. This will create a miniature Tree of Life that only has the branches leading to the families of the species you've selected. This will enable you to see their relations, and relatively how long ago they diverged from one another. Click the View Tree of Life button below the images.

Not every plant, fungus and animal page has been included into this tree yet, we are still working on it. If you find any that are missing, and you'd like to see in the database, let us know.

Auto Create Species List

With this function, can compare two closely related species visually or two unrelated species phylogenetically. Comparing visually can help compare the leaves or flowers of unidentifed plants to known plants, making it easier to narrow down your search. Comparing them phylogenetically will show you just how closely they are related.

The first row along the top are species that you have selected while browsing the site. Clicking a species' , will put it first in the row, and display the first two species in the list. The second row of images are the individual images of that species. Click one of these thumbnail images to view it full-size.

Clicking the View Phylogenetically link below the images, will open a page that has a link that says "View Tree of Life", clicking that will open a diagram that compares the phylogenetic relationship of the species in your list.
