en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phylogenetics

In biology, phylogenetics /ˌfaɪloʊdʒəˈnɛtɪks, -lə-/ is the study of the evolutionary history and relationships among individuals or groups of organisms (e.g. species, or populations). These relationships are discovered through phylogenetic inference methods that evaluate observed heritable traits, such as DNA sequences ...

Phylogeny, the history of the evolution of a species or group, especially in reference to lines of descent and relationships among broad groups of organisms . Fundamental to phylogeny is the proposition, universally accepted in the scientific community, that plants or animals of different species descended from common ...

What is Phylogeny? Biologists estimate that there are about 5 to 100 million species of organisms living on Earth today. Evidence from morphological, biochemical, and gene sequence data suggests that all organisms on Earth are genetically related, and the genealogical relationships of living things can be represented by ...

Sep 18, 2016 ... Phylogeny refers to the evolutionary history of a taxonomic group of organisms. It is essential in the scientific study of the identification, classification, ecology, and evolutionary histories of organisms, which is systematics. Phylogeny shows the relationships between groups of organisms (taxa) particularly ...

Understanding phylogenies. Understanding a phylogeny is a lot like reading a family tree. The root of the tree represents the ancestral lineage, and the tips of the branches represent the descendants of that ancestor. As you move from the root to the tips, you are moving forward in time. Tree showing ancestor and ...

Introduction to Phylogeny. Paleontologists are interested in understanding life through time—not just at one time in the past or present, but over long periods of past time. Before they can attempt to reconstruct the forms, functions, and lives of once-living organisms, paleontologists have to place these organisms in context.
