The names in this tab present an overview of the relationships of this group to other groups in the tree of life, based on the classification hierarchies provided by EOL classification partners. "Parents" are more inclusive groups one level higher up in the hierarchy. "Children" are the subgroups of the current group. In the classification tab, you can use the "display all classifications" link to see a complete list of all the hierarchies provided by our partners. These may include additional related names that are not featured here.
