Description

The primary driver of speciation may result from hybridization instead of the accumulation of mutations. The accumulation of mutations may instead be responsible for a "maturation" which may have real physical meaning rather than being an amorphous concept.

Scientists such as Donald Williamson and Lynn Margulis have suggested similar ideas but perhaps not going as far as this project assumes.

This software converted the Catalogue of Life, catalogueoflife.org, into a gedcom format. It no longer works due to the Catalogue's database format change.

This present project extends the gedcom format for use in systematics or species categorization. All named taxonomic levels are assumed to have originally been individual species and the software/database outputs all species as female until hybridization events can be added manually.

This tool is used to develop the data at http://genealogyoflife.com. It converted the data from 1.2 million species to over 2 million gedcom females.

  • Conversion of the entire 2008 database yielded over 2 million taxa names each made into a "person node" in the gedcom file.
