Phylogenetic tree of life


Life on Earth has a huge variety of forms and functions. This phylogenetic tree of life shows the relationship between species whose genomes had been sequenced as of 2006. The center represents the last universal ancestor of all life on Earth. The different colors represent the three domains of life: pink represents eukayota (animals, plants and fungi); blue represents bacteria; and green represents archaea.
