"Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature & Culture," Mar-2009, Steve Goddard
The recently (1990) proposed “three-domain system” organizes the evolutionary tree of life into three kingdoms on the basis of genetic similarities and the
sophistication of cellular structure. The Interactive Tree of Life website allows one to view data about the evolutionary development and diversifications of
species (phylogenesis) in a variety of tree diagrams, in this case a circular rendering of the evolutionary tree of life.

See the video in this exhibition for more information.
