(Note that this is not a standalone game. A Phylo Starter deck - see related games below - is required for proper playing).
This set was designed by Dr. Stephen McNeil (and illustrated by Julia K. Kreutz) to highlight plant species that are important because of the chemical compounds they provide. As such, it introduces to the Phylo system, a new card type (Chemistry cards), as well as a new rule for expanded play in the Phylo Ecosystem Rules. This deck can be used an expansion deck for the main Phylo ecosystem game (cannot be played on its own in this manner), or used as a stand alone game where pair wise mechanics are followed (i.e. memory, go fish, etc). Includes duplicates of 10 different plant species cards, and 10 associated phytochemical cards.PHYLO: THE TRADING CARD GAME

PHYLO is a project that began as a reaction to the following nugget of information: Kids know more about Pokemon creatures than they do about real creatures.
PHYLO is also: (1) a card game that makes use of the wonderful, complex, and inspiring things that inform the notion of biodiversity; (2) an exercise in crowd sourcing, open access, and open game development; and (3) FREAKIN’ AWESOME!
