Tree Of Life: The History of the World, Visualized

Tree Of Life: The History of the World, Visualized | omnia mea mecum fero | Scoop.it
In this graphic by the Tree of Life web project and designer Leonard Eisenberg, we see all 3.5 billion years of life on earth evolving, not through limbs and timelines, but an elegant rainbow swirl. It’s as if our whole history is a colorful bunch of balloons, all tying back to bacteria.

Population losses would ensue, and things would generally fall apart.
