5 Matching questions

  1. symplesiomorphy
  2. Natural system of classification
  3. Parsimony
  4. Nomenclature
  5. Taxon
  1. a classification based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships
  2. b where a common ancestor is located on a cladogram
  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 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 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

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. features that are the phenotypic expression of homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestoral genes
  2. the several clades of angiosperms that arose before the rest of the angiosperms diverged into the monocots and eudicots
  3. 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.
  4. the clade of angiosperms that contains most species formally known as dicots, broad leaves and pollen with more than one germination pore
  5. a classification not based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships, but on other characters
