A phylogeny is a description, in words or diagrams, of the evolutionary history of a group of related species. It depicts a sequence of branching events and may also identify the characteristic features that mark various lineages. With EdrawMax Online, you can create similar phylogenetic tree diagrams for your usage. The free phylogenetic tree maker offers tons of customization and has a good remote team collaboration. As the below graphical illustration suggests, land plants and closely related green algae (charophytes) are classified as Streptophytes; the remaining green algae are chlorophytes. In simpler words, green algae and land plants comprise the Viridiplantae kingdom, which consists of two phyla: Chlorophyta (green algae) and Streptophyta (charophyte algae and land plants).
