The growing catalogue of online biodiversity data sources has reached a scale where data integration and mashups can be truly useful. Information about species is being aggregated at national and international scales. PhyloJIVE (Phylogeny Javascript Information Visualiser and Explorer) is one such mashup placing biodiversity web-services into an evolutionary context.

Integration with Atlas of Living Australia and iDigBio

Preview linking to iDigBio mapJoe Miller's has made detailed instructions on the use of the ALA implementation of phyloJIVE including videos, which are similar to the instructions for the iDigBio instance of PhyloJIVE. Briefly, this instance offers the following additional features:

Example trees on iDigBio+PhyloJive:

About PhyloJIVE

PhyloJIVE is the brainchild of Garry Jolley-Rogers and Joe Miller and was developed by Temi Varghese and Garry Jolley-Rogers as part of the Taxonomy Research & Information Network (TRIN) – see the original project page, original code repository and ALA code repository. The ALA has contributed to the PhyloJive codebase to integrate a number of web services: occurrence data, maps and character data from Identify Life. Contributions from iDigBio by Andréa Matsunaga included linkage to iDigBio occurrence data and world map view, and linkage to OpenTree studies API. This work has been undertaken with help and advice from Joe Miller.
