← Rare Protozoan from Sludge in Norwegian Lake Does Not Fit On Main Branches of Tree of Life

Thanks to Richard's comment, I don't have to take this article too seriously. I was already annoyed at the phrase,

"organisms that descend from closer to the roots of the tree of life"

Branches do not "descend" from roots, dammit, so already I was brought to a halt trying to figure out what he meant.
