This is a website that displays a hyperramous "family tree" of master's and doctoral students and their supervisory committee members. The committee members serve as the "parents," and the students as their "progeny."

       Our understanding of the process is that it is somewhat more incestuous than that described.   

       That's not intended as a criticism, by the way (of either the process, or incest).

       Just that there is a perceived need for something like this makes me a little glad that I dropped out of college.

       [8]//incestuous// That's a testable hypothesis. <link>, for example shows a surprisingly acyclic graph.   

       [CauF] Thesis committee members can have, really, very little to do with the candidate's intellectual or professional development. Coauthorships might be better (but it's well-baked). Or let parents and progeny self-identify (also baked: see link).

       Darn, it's already baked.   

       I suppose the tree could be pared down so that only the senior supervisors and their doctoral students remain.
