Making 3-D Models of the Tree of Life
© 2005 Eric Lee
Create 3-D models of the Tree of Life to learn about the genetic connections between Life on Earth. Make models with common materials, use templates for "leaves" and get examples of trees to build.

Join Tree of Life contributors from around the globe to create an open access digital library about biodiversity and the evolutionary history of organisms. Treehouse builders are learners, teachers, scientists and science enthusiasts who contribute treehouses (web pages and media about organisms) to the ToL.
