We need your help creating a list of exemplar species from across the tree of life for our public tree!
As our team works to build an open tree of life for the systematics community, we are also working on a educational version of the tree for the public . Our goal is to depict about 200 better-known (i.e. phylogenetically or otherwise important in some way (pathogen, food source, etc.) species from all three domains of life. The intended audience of this effort includes educators, students, and the public in general.
Please click this link to vote for your 5 best exemplars.
And please join the OpenTree conversation through our website, email, and Twitter (opentreeoflife).Thank you!
