A network Tree of Life

In April last year I noted that there are not many images of phylogenetic networks on the internet, suitable for use when an icon or symbol is required, so I provided one (Network road sign). This year I thought that I might point out a far more arty image of "The Tree of Life" that ends up looking more like a network.

The original painting is by Reneé Womack, and prints are available from Fine Art America. You can also have versions with a green or a blue background, but I prefer this one, possibly because it reminds me of the cover of the Tree Thinking book by David Baum and Stacey Smith, which, in turn, is part of the Gustav Klimt mural of the "Tree of Life" (1905-1909).
