This beautiful “tree of life” poster does two things at once:
First, it shows how over 250 common plants, animals, and microbes are classified by biologists into domains, kingdoms, phyla, orders, families, and genera.
Second, it shows where each group fits into the evolutionary history of life according to the most up-to-date genetic research.
There is good use of color to help organize the tree and allow the reader to understand the major section breaks. Having the pictures of the animals as the main focus of the tree, rather than their names keeps the poster clean and not too cluttered.
Great job Matt!
