Extinct species back to life

News & updates on the project using museum-specimen DNA to bring this iconic species all the way back. Extinction Continuum Learn about the genetic situation of a variety of endangered and extinct animals and how biotechnologies might be applied. A continuum of genetic predicaments is matched with a continuum of genetic rescue techniques.Explore the interactive continuum. The Evolution Institute. The Tree of Life. iTOL: Interactive Tree Of Life. Tree of Life Web Project. The Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world.

Tree of Life Web Project

On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, and their evolutionary history (phylogeny). Each page contains information about a particular group, e.g., salamanders, segmented worms, phlox flowers, tyrannosaurs, euglenids, Heliconius butterflies, club fungi, or the vampire squid. ToL pages are linked one to another hierarchically, in the form of the evolutionary tree of life. Starting with the root of all Life on Earth and moving out along diverging branches to individual species, the structure of the ToL project thus illustrates the genetic connections between all living things.
