The DeepTree is a visualization of the history of all life on earth. This tree of life represents the evolutionary relationship of millions of species from the very beginning of life, 3.5 billion years ago. The DeepTree is a multi-touch interactive application, allowing people to “fly through” the vast tree of life to any species, and to learn how species are related through a set of showcase species and shared derived traits.
