    There are millions of species on Earth, and a cladogram is not a practical means for classifying all of them. It is impossible to tell which organisms are most closely related to each other using a cladogram. Cladograms are detail-oriented and do not provide a useful understanding of evolutionary relationships. There is a limited number of ways to organize the information, so most cladograms end up looking very similar.
