B2 - Classification: Evolutionary Trees

HideShow resource information

Evolutionary trees show common ancestors, and the relationships that different species have between each other.

The more recent the ancestor, the more closely related the two species are.

This also means that they are more likely to share similar characteristics.

Scientists discover things about evolutionary relationships all the time.

They do this by analysing the different genes that are responsible for certain characteristics.
