You’ve probably seen a cladogram before without knowing exactly what it was called. It’s a lot like a family tree. What it isn’t though is an evolutionary tree. Evolutionary trees are those large trees-of-life that show how all animals are related to one another and how they have evolved. A cladogram will show those animals that share similar form and structures. It’s not about animals which have evolved from one another.

In this episode we are going to look at clades and cladistics.  We will also create a cladogram… an audio cladogram.
