Classification refers to the arrangement of organisms into groups, sub-groups basing on their similarities and dissimilarities. The more similarities between the two organisms are placed in one group and dissimilar organisms are put in separate groups. The more similar characteristics of organisms found that means they are more closely related and might have a common ancestor. By identifying various characteristics, we can find out the evolutionary relationships among different organisms. Thus, classification of organisms reflects their evolutionary relationships.
