some tools for exploring biodiversity
Some tools for exploring biodiversity
  • Explore trees
    • Target key innovations
    • Identify independent origins
  • Target selective environments
  • Browse natural history records
  • Dig into the literature
  • Ask a biologist

Organizing Life
  • Phylogeny: hypothesized evolutionary relationships among a group of species

target clades with key innovations
Target Clades with Key Innovations
  • Explore variation in that trait between environments, lineages, etc.

identify multiple evolutionary origins
Identify multiple evolutionary origins
  • For a particular trait
  • For solving a particular problem
target selective environments
Target Selective Environments
  • Can you distill your problem into an environment organisms are adapted to?

  • We are always excited to talk about our study organisms!
  • 200+ biologists at the University (CBS, CFANS)
  • Find a specialist for your group of interest
