Description

This MS Access database converts the Catalogue of Life into a gedcom format. This extends the use of the gedcom format for use in Systematics or species categorization.

This move is inspired by a, belief that speciation can result from hybridization and may in fact be its primary driver instead of the accumulation of mutations. The accumulation of mutations may instead be responsible for a theoretical "maturation" of species which may have real physical meaning rather than being an amorphous concept which it might at first seem to be.

Such a view is not entirely out of left field as a slow consensus is possibly developing that something like this may be going on. Scientists such as Donald Williamson and Lynn Margulis before she died, might regarded as pioneers in this way of thinking.

This tool is used to develop the data at http://genealogyoflife.com/.
