We study animals and how they came to be from the same animals and then changed over time into different ones. Some of them disappear through time, but others break into two or more over many, many years. When we figure out the order of the past situation we call it a tree of life. The tree helps us place the animals of the past into the places that they came from. It also tells us what they might have looked like and how they acted. We think that it’s very cool to know how and why animals are the way that they are! There is no doubt that living things are part of the tree of life, but understanding how the parts fit together takes a lot of hard work, and that’s what we do. We use the stuff inside animal cells as building blocks for putting the tree together, and that takes a lot of training and computer time.
