They studied and compared the physical features of different species for generations. However, these physical features played a supporting role in its creation; the chief source of the tree of life was the comparison of DNA sequences. They used the fact that every living creature has some DNA sequences in common, for we all share one ancestral species. The species having more DNA sequences in common are positioned closer to each other on the tree than the distantly related ones.
