"Few groups of organisms hold such a
fascination for evolutionary biologists as the Volvocales. It is almost
as if these algae were designed to exemplify the process of evolution"
This project is designed as a common
effort among scientists with interests in
Volvocales who wish to share information, data, images, research
tools, publications. The website has sections on Volvocales ecology and
life-history, phylogeny and systematics, as well as
on various research tools. The site also provides information
about research themes/projects, labs and other centers of interest to
Volvocales community. When available, PDF
files of publications are posted. Recently, a wiki has been added to
the site; this is intended to become a comprehensive open and public
database on all volvocalean species. The site invites and encourages
researchers to submit information and abstracts or publications to be
shared with the rest of the community as soon as possible.
