Lifemap - Tree of Life

By Laboratoire de Biométrie et Biologie Évolutive

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Lifemap is a tool to explore the tree of life in an interactive manner, similar to the exploration of geographic maps. The tree displayed is a simplification of the taxonomy provided by the NCBI. The tree contains around 800,000 species. Each node (incl. species) in the tree can be clicked to get information and pictures retrieved from Wikipedia. It is also possible to compute and visualize the "route" between two taxa or clades in the tree.

Lifemap was written by Damien de Vienne, CNRS researcher at the Biometry and Evolutionary Biology Laboratory (Lyon, France).
For more information on Lifemap, see the article published in PLoS Biology:
