Tree of life

So as we continue on the tree theme here, I thought I would include a couple of articles on what is known as the Tree of Life. The book I’m still trying to finish up, Horseshoe Crabs nd Velvet Worms by Richard Fortey, I came across these two articles on the topic of this process.

The first one is entitled “How Organisms Evolve New Functions: Evolution is as Complicated as 1-2-3” over at Science Daily. Now why’ll Mr. Fortey does lose me mulitple times, it’s been quite fascinating to see how the puzzle pieces of the bigger picture relate.

The other article is “Study of Giant Viruses Shakes up Tree of Life” also at Science Daily. Again, this article loses me sometimes but it’s just amazing how science can track these organisms back in time.

Study on!
