Evolutionary trees are used to represent the relationships between organisms. The diagram shows an evolutionary tree.
In this evolutionary tree, species A and B share a common ancestor. Species F and G share a common ancestor, which itself shared a common ancestor with species E. All seven species share a common ancestor, probably from the distant past.
