Link: Homepage : Map of Life

The purpose of the Map of Life is to document diverse examples of evolutionary convergence from throughout the living world, based on information from peer-reviewed journals and other scientific literature. Each example of convergence is connected by an array of links to other related topics, creating an extensively cross-referenced database. Moving around the pages of the site allows you to effectively explore the fascinating nature of convergent evolution and what it tells us about predictability in biological systems.

The name ‘Map of Life’ reflects the way that evolution has repeatedly arrived at, or converged upon, the same adaptive solutions from more or less unrelated starting points, as though evolutionary trajectories were following a metaphorical ‘map’ to the same destination...
