Expert Answer:

The process by which different kinds of living organism are believed to have developed from earlier forms during the history of the Earth is called evolution. Classification should be based upon anatomical characteristics that arose due to common descent, whether those common features be in the skeleton, skull, soft tissues, teeth or genetic structure. Such evolutionary change and relationships are represented in "family trees," or 'phylogenetic' trees.
