Convergence Website

Things slow around here?  Looking for some juicy carrots to nibble on?  Well, go have a look at Simon Conway Morris’ new website entitled, Map of Life:
This website aims to tell you nearly everything you need (and may ever want) to know about convergent evolution. It allows you to explore the way that similar adaptive solutions have repeatedly evolved from unrelated starting points, as though following a metaphorical ‘map’.
The site archives hundreds of examples of convergence, enough to keep any bunny busy for a long time.  I think you’ll like it.

One response to “Convergence Website

  1. I’ve had an interest in Simon’s views on evolution ever since I heard of his book, “Life’s Solution.”

    While I haven’t had the chance to read it yet, I’ve heard elsewhere that he does hold a somewhat telic view of evolution, so I look forward to what he presents on this site.

    At any rate, he definitely is a go-to researcher on the Cambrian era.
