How to construct an evolutionary tree:

Simplest way: the principle of parsimony

Find the shortest number of evolutionary steps

to explain the differences between species.


Example: an evolutionary tree for mammals

Here is an unparsimonious evolutionary tree:

Chicken Bat Platypus Cat Kangaroo

lays eggs live birth, lays eggs live birth, live birth

placenta placenta


Example: an evolutionary tree for mammals

Here is a parsimonious evolutionary tree:

Chicken Platypus Kangaroo Bat Cat

lays eggs lays eggs live birth live birth live birth

placenta placenta


We can use an outgroup to decide which traits are

ancestral and which are derived.

Chicken Platypus Kangaroo Bat Cat

lays eggs lays eggs live birth live birth live birth

placenta placenta


You can figure out how to build the tree by finding

shared derived characteristics.

lays eggs lays eggs live birth live birth live birth

Look for shared derived characteristics

Foot pads

Feathery antennae


Look for shared derived characteristics

Long proboscis

(mouth parts)


Look for shared derived characteristics

Broken stripes
