oh, monti. phylogenetics is studying how closely related things are. its super-fun for biologists to study stuff like that. yay evolution!!

And basically you read phylogenetic trees from the bottom up or side out, depending where all the branches come together. That point is the last ancestor that was shared by all the species on the ends of the branches.

In this case, the most common recent ancestor is the classic O RLY owl.

Ahh you silly bio-nuts. I still don't get the joke it. But if you say it's funny I'll laugh along like the village idiot.
