How stands the Tree of Life a century and a half after The Origin?

Biology Direct
Maureen A O'Malley, Eugene V Koonin

Abstract

We examine the Tree of Life (TOL) as an evolutionary hypothesis and a heuristic. The original TOL hypothesis has failed but a new "statistical TOL hypothesis" is promising. The TOL heuristic usefully organizes data without positing fundamental evolutionary truth.
