Assembling the Fungal Tree of LifeThis project is dedicated to enhancing our understanding of the evolution of the Kingdom Fungi, which represents one of the major clades of life. A more robust understanding of the evolutionary history of the Fungi is necessary to expand our knowledge of the history of life on Earth and the evolution of ecosystems and to facilitate the creation of diagnostic tools that will promote the discovery of the many undescribed fungal species.
Deep HyphaDeep Hypha is an NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN) that is focused on developing robust phylogenetic hypotheses for the deep branches within Kingdom Fungi and enhanced research and educational tools in fungal systematics.
Tree of Life Web ProjectThe Tree of Life Web Project (ToL) is a collaborative effort of biologists from around the world. On more than 4,000 web pages, the project provides information about the diversity of organisms on Earth, their evolutionary history (phylogeny), and characteristics. Each page contains information about a particular group of organisms (e.g., echinoderms, tyrannosaurs, phlox flowers, cephalopods, club fungi, or the salamanderfish of Western Australia). 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.
