It would be very nice if you could see the stats and transmutations in the game. Having to alt-tab out of the game to find out what you need on a tile becomes a pain with time, and the game has crashed for me twice when I've alt-tabbed out of it. Transmutations aren't predictable, so there's no way to know which high-level resource that fits a specific situation without memorizing them all or making use of the wiki. If you have, say, a plant in between two mines, you're going to have to look over all the plants on the wiki to find the most fitting one that gets a bonus from being next to mines.

The resources are already listed in the game, so that's not a problem.

Ideally, you should be able to click on a tile and see the transmutation tree and their stats and symbioses by clicking on a button in the top right menu that shows up. From there you should be able to check a list of all the possible resources, to see if there is an ideal one outside of the current tree.

It really kills the relaxing mood to have the music cut out once a minute because you want to make sure that all your villages are getting the resources they need the most.

An easily accessible tech tree would be wonderful yeah, something like:

Click tile -> Little "branching box" button on the bottom right of tile info -> Click button -> Brings up the tile type's (forest animal/desert plant/etc) tech tree.

ooo! And clicking on your "goal tech" would cause little "required boost" icons to hover (under?) the tile, that disappear as you add 'em.

I agree. A potential complaint judging from what I've read is that this removes the element of discovery. To combat this you could just put question marks over animals/plants/minerals in the tech tree that you haven't encountered yet. This would allow you to have easy reference material in game without spoiling the progression system.
