Classification of living things has changed a lot since I went to school. Seriously, it’s changed a ton. They’ve invented entire kingdoms and added a bazillion layers of stuff. There are a lot of living things out there.
Anyway, I thought I’d share a good resource for learning how things tend to be classified now. Scientists actually rarely agree, so this web site just shows the classification as is agreed upon by several resources. That’s just how science is.
The Tree of Life website has been around for over twenty years (in fact, it was born on my birthday in 1994… be still, my heart!). That pretty much makes it an Internet antique — but of course they keep it updated, so you can trust the information contained within.
Anyway I thought I’d draw attention to the “Dinosaurs including birds” page. Because birds are dinosaurs, officially.
