5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Parsimony
  2. Artificial classification system
  3. Homologous features
  4. Nomenclature
  5. symplesiomorphy
  1. a features that are the phenotypic expression of homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestoral genes
  2. b the concept of minimum complexity: the simplest hypothesis that explains several observation is the most parsimonious. In cladistics, a cladogram with the least number of steps is the most parsimonious
  3. c a trait which is shared (a symmorphy) between two or more taxa, but which is also shared with other taxa which have an earlier last common ancestor with the taxa under consideration
  4. d a classification not based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships, but on other characters
  5. e where a common ancestor is located on a cladogram

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the first law of mendelian genetics
  2. : a group of organisms that can interbreed and produce fertile offspring
  3. the evolutionary relationships where one taxon evolves into others that evolve into still more
  4. classification based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships
  5. a trait that is shared ("symmorphy") by two or more taxa and their most recent common ancestor, whose ancestor in turn does not possess the trait.

5 True/False questions

  1. Form genusthe evolutionary relationships where one taxon evolves into others that evolve into still more

          

  2. Eudicotsthe clade of angiosperms that contains most species formally known as dicots, broad leaves and pollen with more than one germination pore

          

  3. Paraphyletic group: a clade that contains an ancestral taxon, and several but not all its descendants

          

  4. Basal angiospermsthe several clades of angiosperms that arose before the rest of the angiosperms diverged into the monocots and eudicots

          

  5. Taxonthe concept of minimum complexity: the simplest hypothesis that explains several observation is the most parsimonious. In cladistics, a cladogram with the least number of steps is the most parsimonious
