Cladistics is a method used by scientists to understand the evolutionary relationship between organisms. With living species, biologists can also demonstrate kinship through DNA research. This is usually not possible with fossils. In such cases, kinship will have to be demonstrated by researching the shared characteristics of groups. Through this research evolutionary trees and cladograms can be made.
