Phylogenetic Avian tree

I was reading Nick Minor's science of birds blog - and came across the following infographic, which is pretty cool, but the chronology is hard to infer without your mind melting a little:


But then it seems some of the folks at Imperial College have also built an beautifully organic moving visualisation of the same data set right here. I could play with this for hours.

About Me

My photo
NYC, Buxton, Buenos Aires
I work in NYC and own a wildlife and wilderness agency specializing in the southern cone of South America. I still do some guiding down there, especially looking for Fuegian and Patagonian avifauna. I'm particularly interested in the wintering ecology of neotropical migrants, and in avian biogeography in general. You can follow me at - @domhall And find me at - AventuraArgentina.com
