How Is It Classified?



I created the two phylogenetic trees above and below. The phylogenetic trees show the rambutan’s closest relatives based on morphology and where they lay in overall classification. The tree above shows the overall classification of the rambutan. It is a member of the domain Eukarya, the kingdom Plantae, and so on until the genus and species Nephelium lappaceum. The phylogenetic tree below represents the different species that belong to the family Sapindaceae and the genus Nephelium.
