This family phylogenetic tree is a branching diagram that depicts evolutionary relationships. These trees, which are frequently compared to family trees, are built using a variety of evidence, most notably DNA. The lengths of the branches in phylogenetic trees can sometimes represent the time since a group split from each other. Each node with descendants in a rooted phylogenetic tree represents those descendants' inferred most recent common ancestor, and edge lengths in some trees can be interpreted as time estimates. Each node is referred to as a taxonomic unit. Internal nodes are commonly referred to as hypothetical taxonomic units because they cannot be observed directly, as shown in this family phylogenetic tree diagram.
