Cladistics

Cladistics (from Greek κλάδος, klados, i.e. `branch`) is an approach to biological classification in which organisms are grouped together based on whether or not they have one or more shared unique characteristics that come from the group`s last common ancestor and are not present in more distant ancestors. Therefore, members of the same ......

Cladistics

Cladistics is a method of classifying organisms based on common ancestry and the branching of the evolutionary family tree. Organisms that share common ancestors (and therefore have similar features) are grouped into taxonomic groups called clades. Cladistics can also be used to predict properties of yet-to-be discovered organisms.

cladistics

Method of biological classification that uses a formal step-by-step procedure for objectively assessing the extent to which organisms share particular characteristics, and for assigning them to taxonomic groups called clades. Clades comprise all the species descended from a known or inferred common ancestor plus the ancestor itself, and may...
