My Year of Darwin 10/31/2014: Darwin's Tree of Life

 Charles Darwin

"so by generation I believe it has been with the great Tree of Life, which fills with its dead and broken branches with crust of the earth, and covers the surface with its ever branching and beautiful ramifications." 
Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 1st edition (on Kindle)

I find this beautiful and apropos for today's lecture on phylogenetics.
