Designed to complement the study of the kingdoms, the phylogenetic tree of life shows the progression of life from amino acids through the development of the various kingdoms. The basic idea behind the tree of life concept is to show that all life on earth is related in an evolutionary context. 

Although the idea of a tree of life was originally described by Charles Darwin, it was not readily accepted until Carl Woese offered to refine the idea using genetic data to show that all organisms share common genetic patterns that can ultimately be traced back to a common origin.
