ToL Scientific Core Contributor Registration
ToL scientific core contributors are usually phylogenetic biologists and/or systematists. Before registering as a ToL Scientific Contributor, you should contact your branch coordinator(s) to get your group assignments confirmed. Send an e-mail message to the relevant coordinator(s) describing what groups you would like to cover. Most likely, the branch coordinator will already be aware of your work, however, it is a good idea to include information about your qualifications as an author (i.e., list of relevant publications, brief description of ongoing research projects) as well as a list of possible co-authors you would like to work with. If coordinators are not listed for your group, or if you have trouble getting in touch with them, you can send an inquiry to and we will try to help.
