Re: Romerograms

Here is a blog post and a lengthy thread on the 1932 "histomap". http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2007/11/bad_maps.php

Romerograms are similar, but have a much more explicit phylogenetic component, and the "relative dominance" is (if at all) labeled "diversity" even though it is practically never a species, genus or even family count (almost always the mammal bubble is broader than the bird bubble, the edges are smooth and rounded instead of pixelized, and so on).
