Visual Thinking & Evolution

Demonstrating the continued importance of visual communication in all fields, we have UC Berkeley helping educators explain “the most misunderstood concept in science”, evolution.  The tool is the evogram, a series of tightly focused evolutionary paths demonstrating the emergence of species and/or features:

While the visual execution might be lacking, the structure and mode of the visual narrative is worthy of Tufte.  The evogram’s tightness and potency is worth of a sparkline.
