Phylogenetic trees! (help)
ZaraC VCE Biology4

Hey would someone mind quickly explaining how you measure relatedness on phylogenetic trees (by like comparing which species are "more" related on the tree) I'm a bit confused :/

the more recent the split between the two species (e.g. the closer the split is to the 'current') the more related they are.

The point where two branches begin is called a node. The node represents when two species were essentially the same animal. The less nodes between two species the closer they are in terms of relatedness.
