Google Earth phylogenies

I've been playing with Google Earth as a phylogeny viewer, inspired by Bill Piel's efforts, the cool avian flu visualisation Janies et al. published in Systematic Biology (doi:10.1080/10635150701266848), and David Kidd's work. As an example, I've taken a phylogeny for Banza katydids from Shapiro et al. (doi:10.1016/j.ympev.2006.04.006), and created a KML file. Unlike Bill's trees, I've drawn the tree as a phylogram, because I think biogeography becomes much easier to interpret when we have a time scale (or at least a proxy, such as sequence divergence). I've converted COI branch lengths to altitude, and elevated the tree off the ground to accomodate the fact that the tips don't all line up (this isn't an ultrametric tree). Wouldn't it be fun to have a collection of molecular trees for Hawaiian taxa for the same gene, plotted on the same Google Earth map?

But is this because of Google’s faulty search algorithms or is it because sometimes our searches can be ambiguous? Well whatever the case after the Gmail search article I decided to expand the subject a little.

I know some things you will find here you already know and some of them might be new for you. I will start with the basic syntax that I am sure all of you know, but it’s the basis for further more complex syntax.

First of all there is a part of Google’s syntax that allows you to tell it where exactly to search. This comes in handy when you know part of a URL or maybe a title but you can’t find the exact page. You can use ‘intitle:’ to search only the titles for web pages, as many of the other functions that are to follow ‘intitle:’ has a variation, namely ‘allintitle:’ that includes all the terms that follow in to the title search: intitle:”Santa Maria” boat -> searches in title for Santa Maria and does a search on the term boatallintitle:pirate ships treasure -> searches in title for all the terms.

Let’s start by looking at one such URL: as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&lr=&as_ft=i&as_filetype=&as_qdr=all&as_occt=any&as_dt=i&as_sitesearch= You don’t understand much and it looks quite long but it doesn’t have to be this way.
