Trees of Life: A Visual History of Evolution Trees of Life: A Visual History of Evolution catalogs 230 tree-like branching diagrams, culled from 450 years of mankind’s visual curiosity about the living world and our quest to understand the complex ecosystem we share with other organisms, from bacteria to birds, microbes to mammals. (More trees are visible at the Google Books site.)

I love these. The big problem is that the trees need to be really wide, and the closest we've got to an inclusive layout is the Hillis tree.

Though there are some uses for cut-down versions.
