The Tree of Life Web Project, originally created by biologists David and Wayne Maddison at the University of Arizona, is a "collaborative Internet project containing information about phylogeny and biodiversity (first mentioned in the December 6, 1996 Scout Report
). Initially intended for use by biologists seeking taxonomic information, this Web resource has met with great enthusiasm from non-biologists, including middle and high school students, in the years since its creation. With frequent additions to the database, this Web site has expanded enormously since 1996. Very recent additions include a new page for Strepsiptera (twisted-wing parasites) and for Annelida (segmented worms). Life science educators and students should take advantage of this ambitious Web project as a learning tool.
