Open Tree progress
The Open Tree of Life project includes periodic releases of
OTT (Open Tree taxonomy)
latest synthetic tree,
as well as incremental addition of published phylogenetic trees.

(operational taxonomic units) in various components. Note the
large gap between the number of taxa in OTT and the number of
taxa in our datastore (phylesystem) and the synthetic tree!
Please help close this gap by adding published trees through our
