Additional notes

Binary trees have been used to model relationships for thousands of years. One reason for this is that binary trees naturally model (pedigree) family trees. These are the family trees in which the root is a person, the left and right children are the person’s parents, and so on, recursively. In more recent centuries, binary trees have also been used to model species trees in biology, where the leaves of the tree represent extant species and the internal nodes of the tree represent speciation events in which two populations of a single species evolve into two separate species.
