A taxonomic key can be used to show the proposed evolution of organisms from the simple to the complex.


The Tree of Life is a powerful illustration of the idea of descent with modification that life started with a primitive single cell and has progressed to the wide variety of complex organisms seen in the world today.

It is important to realize that the Tree of Life while a important illustration of the concept of Darwinian evolution it can not be used simultaneously as evidence for Darwinian evolution.
