An online exhibit of the University of California Museum of Paleontology that focuses on the three major domains of life, archaea, bacteria, and the eukaryota. "This exhibit provides a survey of that biodiversity through time, focusing on major lineages of organisms. Many of these lineages have gone extinct or currently exist at a much lower diversity than in the past, so there may be large exhibits on groups of organisms that are unfamiliar to you." Has a timeline and general information about fossils, systematics, and ecology of major groups, but does not drill down to information about individual species, focusing on the big picture instead.
