TimeTree Puts an Evolutionary Family Tree of Life's Diversity at Your Fingertips
Researchers at the Center for Biodiversity at Temple University have released the latest and greatest version of TimeTree, an interactive visualization of the history of life on Earth.
Next Generation TimeTree: An expanded history of life on Earth at your fingertips
Temple University's scientists Sudhir Kumar and S. Blair Hedges, of the Institute for Genomics and Evolutionary Medicine (iGEM) and Center for Biodiversity, have had a longstanding goal to develop easy-to-use tools to make evolution more accessible for everyone
TimeTree: evolutionary iPhone app shows when you shared an ancestor with chimps
A new iPhone app, TimeTree, allows users to see in a few moments how long ago they shared a common ancestor with any species on Earth.
The Fruit That Hit Newton's Head Is Down With the Fruit of Darwin's Head
Querying the Timetree application accesses a vast database of data, the National Center for Biotechnology Information's comprehensive taxonomy browser, which contains information on more than 160,000 organisms.

When Did You and Your Ferret Evolutionarily Diverge? There's an App for That
There's a cool new Web site—and iPhone app—that could come in handy in a wide variety of circumstances. It's called Time Tree. And it tells you how closely related any two organisms are over time.
Smartphone App for Genes on Earth Is Tool for Scientists and Entertaining for All
The scientists who put an innovative tree of life online last year now have made that same resource available -- free -- for smartphones. The new \"TimeTree\" application lets anyone with an Apple iPhone harness a vast Internet storehouse of data about the diversity of life, from bacteria to humans.
Free App Tells You Everything You Want To Know About Life On Earth (Video)
The project of compiling all the world's data on species evolution was started online last year, but now the whole thing is available to anyone with an iPhone. If you're interested in the links different species have to one another on the evolutionary time tree, you'll be able to look it up in just a few seconds.
New App For Genes On Earth Is Tool For Scientists And Entertaining For All
The ultimate goal of the whole Timetree of Life project, according to Hedges, is \"to chart the timescale of life -- to discover when each species and all their ancestors originated, all the way back to the origin of life some four billion years ago.\"
Steve Jobs in iPhone bitchslap to creationists, Tea Party
Apple has taken a stance which will upset a lot of Americans: it has allowed an app which specifies quite clearly that evolution is real and that humans and monkeys share a common ancestor some 30 million years in the past.
Grasping the tree of life: There's an app for that, too
The TimeTree app harnesses a vast Internet storehouse of data on life forms ranging from fungi to foxhounds, putting this information in the palm of one's hand. The intuitive interface is designed to answer a simple question, quickly and authoritatively: When did species A and species B share a common ancestor?

We both enjoyed reading this book. It is obvious, from the very beginning of the book till the end that UOP, the book editors and the numerous authors have delivered a magnificent piece of work.Journal of Sedimentary Research (2010)
Geologos (2010) 16, 133-135
We are convinced that this well-thought-over book will still be valuable when its information will have become partly outdated. Undoubt- edly, this volume is an exciting gift to Darwin's 200th anniversary. Read and enjoy it!Geologos (2010) 16, 133-135

Undoubtedly, the volume edited by HEDGES & KUMAR is an exciting gift to geoscientists now, at a time of the DARWIN's 200 anniversary. The reviewer recommends this book strongly for all palaeontologists, geologists, and all other specialists interested in the evolution of the life.Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Paläontologie (2010) 2009, 930-933
