  • Taxonomy
    • Explain the relationship between classification and phylogeny
      • Classification
      • study of the principles of classification
        • the study of the differences between species, enabling classification categories to be set up
          • study of the evolutionary relationships between species
            • Phylogeny
              • The more recent the common ancestor, the more similar the species will be
                • As you venture UP the taxa, organisms get more and more varied
