I found the tree diagram to be rather effective, and it would have been even more so if the green [n] shape in the second row were colored yellow instead of green.
The use of the Venn diagram as a legend for the multicolored bar chart was confusing, and required a great deal of moving back and forth between Venn and Bar. Or it would have, if the superior tree diagrm weren't available.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
