What is the difference between a cladogram and a phylogram?
A phylogram is a branching diagram (tree) that is
assumed to be an estimate of a phylogeny. The branch lengths are proportional
to the amount of inferred evolutionary change. A cladogram is a branching
diagram (tree) assumed to be an estimate of a phylogeny where the branches are
of equal length. Therefore, cladograms show common ancestry, but do not
