5 Matching questions

  1. Homologous features
  2. Eudicots
  3. Phylogeny
  4. Form genus
  5. Basal angiosperms
  1. a features that are the phenotypic expression of homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestoral genes
  2. b the several clades of angiosperms that arose before the rest of the angiosperms diverged into the monocots and eudicots
  3. c the clade of angiosperms that contains most species formally known as dicots, broad leaves and pollen with more than one germination pore
  4. d the evolutionary relationships where one taxon evolves into others that evolve into still more
  5. e genus based on a character that is not a reliable indicator of evolutionary relationships, unrelated groups get grouped together

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. classification based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships
  2. : a group of organisms that can interbreed and produce fertile offspring
  3. a classification not based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships, but on other characters
  4. the binomial name of a species
  5. : a clade that contains an ancestral taxon, and several but not all its descendants

5 True/False questions

  1. Nomenclature: a group of organisms that can interbreed and produce fertile offspring

          

  2. Apomorphya feature present in one (autopomorphy) or several (synopomorphy) derived members of a group but is not present in the ancestral members

          

  3. Cladogramthe evolutionary relationships where one taxon evolves into others that evolve into still more

          

  4. symplesiomorphya 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. synapomorphya feature present in one (autopomorphy) or several (synopomorphy) derived members of a group but is not present in the ancestral members
