Cladistics is a comparatively recent system for identifying and displaying the supposed evolutionary relationships between living things. Its objective is to provide clear and testable hypotheses. Cladograms are used to present different tree-like relationships. Cladistics is offered as an alternative to creationary classification systems such as Linnaean taxonomy and baraminology.
