Evolution Wiki

I have always been disappointed by the EvoWiki -- I found that I could get better information on evolutionary biology from the regular Wikipedia. Now some folks have organized the evolution content on Wikipedia into navigation templates. I have not examined the content of the entries listed in these templates, but this seems like a cool idea.

Evolution: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Evolution

Population genetics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Popgen

Development of phenotype (or "genetic architecture", its original name): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Genarch

Phylogenetics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Phylo

Quantitative genetics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Qg

Speciation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Speciation

Evolution of chromosomes: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Chromo

Origin of life: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Origin_of_life
