Pete Buchholz recently started compiling a phylogeny of edible plants, based on the APG III system. I ran it through Names on Nodes and produced a diagram:
(Unfortunately, this version strips out the clade labels—I'll try and rectify that at some point.)
When I saw this, I though, what a fantastic way to learn plant phylogeny! It's something I don't know much about (apart from basics, like the differerence between gymnosperms and angiosperms), and so I found it fascinating to see the ways the foods I eat are related to each other.
It's such a good idea, I couldn't resist doing another version for edible animals and fungi:
And this reminded me of another project I'd been meaning to start for a while, so I finally took a stab at it. A phylogeny of cartoon animals!
(That's right, there's a stuffed tiger clade.)
