What does a phylogenetic tree represent? A phylogenetic tree shows the evolutionary relationships among biological lineages. These lineages may be individuals, genes, populations, or species.

What does a phylogenetic tree represent? A phylogenetic tree shows the evolutionary relationships among biological lineages. These lineages may be individuals, genes, populations, or species. Almost everything we study in biology (e.g., genes, individual organisms, populations, species) are connected through an evolutionary history. To make biology predictive, we must account for these connections.

What are appropriate data for phylogenetic analysis? Assumptions of characters : 1. Heritable (genetically determined) 2. Genetically independent Examples : •Nucleotide positions in a gene (A,G,C, or T) •Amino acid positions in a protein •Presence vs. absence of particular genes •Presence vs. absence or form of many morphological traits (if variation is not a result of environment) •Presence vs. absence or form of some behavioral traits (if genetic rather than learned)
