Phylogeny concerns the evolutionary history and development of organisms, how they diverge and evolve from each other, and the relationships between them.

The Phylogeny Explorer is a navigable, online encyclopedia of the entire evolutionary tree of life. Navigate the cladogram, from root to tips, and see ancestral lineages branching like a a tree. Search for specific clades or species, and interact with the nodes at each branch to find out more information, including pictures, parent or child clades, and reference material.
