phylogeny is the evolutionary relationship between organisms based on modern classification. The more closely related organisms are the more recent ancestors (if that makes sense)? They are studied by using the classification systems of the domain system (animalia, plantae, prokaryotes, fungi, protoctista) and taxonomic rank (kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genius, species).

so does this mean it's like the evolutionary tree thing? with common ancestors?

phylogeny is the study of evolutionary relationships where as taxonomy is the principles behind classification.

no me either and it doesn't help that it was the last topic we had done so i haven't had chance to fully understand it. i think when answering past questions they are asking for specific answers and i find the questions tend to be vague, which is annoying!
