Welcome to Mikko's Phylogeny Archive. This is my private archive of various phylogenetic trees. Although many groups of modern organisms are already taxonomically or descriptionally well treated in the Web, there are still some gaping holes left, especially when treating extinct organisms. This site aims to fill some of those holes. In current form [2019-02-27] it holds nearly 6,000 pages, most of them cladograms (phylogenetic trees) or taxonomic listings. More...

Last update 2019-02-27.

On March 26th Univ. Helsinki venerable Unix-service was run down due obsolesce. As Archive was located on these servers, a forceful eviction and a relocation came to order. This caused a short service brake for Archive.
However, this service brake also has a silver lining since it has forced me to do the long delayed site update on a new location. Also the updating and maintenance on the new location is easier, so I may end up updating more frequently.
One drawback, though, the URL of the new location is longer and combined with Archive's file structure makes page-URL's, especially in the ends of long branches really awfully long.

Ecologically important(?) meteor craters
– These craters are selected, because the impacts that created them, have presumably had important ecological effects, both locally and globally.


Geological timetables
– One of the key elements in understanding of the phylogeny and evolution of organisms, is the understanding their age and longevity. [Finnish version / suomenkielinen]
