That is a pretty neat site. I have some issues with the 'tree of life' approach to evolution but that site is still cool.

Maybe one day, when you have time, you can tell us about the issues you have with the 'tree of life' approach to evolution. You always post some interesting things.

I'll try but I'm typing on my phone.

The problem is it that it massively over simplifies what is going on.

In reality it is probably much more web like than tree like.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2009/jan/21/charles-darwin-evolution-species-tree-life is quite a good article on it.

Interesting.
