Tree of Life App is a resource for Apple mobile devices that allows the exploration of a large, family-level illustrated phylogeny of organisms in an interactive way. The app enables users to zoom in and out and to move about the large tree of life to explore evolutionary relationships among organims, to collapse entire branches and to view specific subtrees of groups of organisms. A search feature is also present in order to find any group of organisms by either scientific names (family names) or common name.
The project is commited to display the most up to date source of phylogenetic information, built upon a compilation of data from hundreds of scientific studies. As new phylogenetic data is being published constantly in several peer reviewed journals, the Tree of Life will not be static and is being updated constantly.
Details about updates can be found in the blog posts.
