This week, my selection for ISW was a no brainer. The following website has been making the rounds on the Interwebs, and it's easy to see why. From T. Michael Keesey, the mind behind A Three-Pound Monkey Brain, comes PhyloPic, an open database of life form silhouettes.
My first submission, Triceratops horridus, in silhouette form.
As Mike states on his blog, this project has anazing potential. With 145 silhouettes already in the database, it's a fantastic resource and I can't wait to see (and help it) grow. Go check it out, submit images if you have them (thanks to Traumador for posting the tutorial over at ART Evolved), and most importantly, spread the word. And congratulations to Michael and PhyloPic for taking home the "Interweb Science of the Week" award for a job well done!
You knew I wasn't going to let anyone else upload a Cooperoceras texanum before I did. Huzzah, relatively unknown taxa!
