Title: The Tree of Life Web Project
Url: http://tolweb.org/tree/phylogeny.html
Publisher: Maddison, David R.
Description: The Tree of Life Web Project, originally created by biologists David and Wayne Maddison at the University of Arizona, is a "collaborative Internet project containing information about phylogeny and biodiversity." Initially intended for use by biologists seeking taxonomic information, this Web resource has met with great enthusiasm from non-biologists, including middle and high school students, in the years since its creation. With frequent additions to the database, this Web site has expanded enormously since 1996. Recent additions include a new page for Strepsiptera (twisted-wing parasites) and for Annelida (segmented worms). Life science educators and students should take advantage of this ambitious Web project as a learning tool.
