5 Matching questions

  1. Binomial system of nomenclature
  2. Taxon
  3. Homologous features
  4. Parsimony
  5. Paraphyletic group
  1. a features that are the phenotypic expression of homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestoral genes
  2. b : a system providing scientific names to organisms, each name consists of the genous name and the speciec epithet
  3. c a term that refers to any taxonomic group such as species, genus, family, etc...
    Type specimen: a single specimen that is the absolute standard for the species and its scientific name
  4. d 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
  5. e : a clade that contains an ancestral taxon, and several but not all its descendants

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the first law of mendelian genetics
  2. the binomial name of a species
  3. a branching diagram sowing the phylogenetic relationships of several or many taxa
  4. during divergent evolutiona common ancstor gives rise to two or more groups, in a cladogram, it is node that gives rise to the taxa being studied
  5. where a common ancestor is located on a cladogram

5 True/False questions

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

          

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

          

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

          

  4. synapomorphya 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. 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.
