The big tree of life based on ribosomal RNA

God doesn’t like labels

Nature’s complexity goes beyond human imagination. The discovery and exploitation of biodiversity has undoubtedly helped us to reach a certain level of understanding of the natural world. Even though all essential ecological processes of the biosphere are determined and regulated by microorganism activity, for most
