It's really difficult to get sap out of pubic hair?

FTFA: "Tree of sex was concieved by Professor Judith Mank of UCL and the Tree of Sex consortium, from a publication to be featured in PLoS Biology. This article was based off a talk given to the London Skeptics in The Pub."

They could have linked to http://treeofsex.org/ , the website for the Tree of Sex Consortium,
They have a cool logo:
bbrowse.biol.berkeley.edu
However that site also includes the blurry image used in the article which is apparently taken from the "in press" PLoS Biology, publication:  The Tree of Sex Consortium (2014). "Sex determination: Why so many ways of doing it?". Lots of cites to this turn up but no pre-prints.

What can we learn?

I'm all for branching out with my knowledge of sex, but this one's got me stumped.

What we should not learn from the Tree of Sex is that scorpions are crustaceans.
