5 Matching questions

  1. Basal angiosperms
  2. Artificial classification system
  3. Apomorphy
  4. Analogous features
  5. Natural system of classification
  1. a the several clades of angiosperms that arose before the rest of the angiosperms diverged into the monocots and eudicots
  2. b features that resemb;e eachother but are not based on homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestral genes
  3. c a classification not based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships, but on other characters
  4. d classification based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships
  5. e a feature present in one (autopomorphy) or several (synopomorphy) derived members of a group but is not present in the ancestral members

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. where a common ancestor is located on a cladogram
  2. 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
  3. features that are the phenotypic expression of homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestoral genes
  4. : a clade that contains an ancestral taxon, and several but not all its descendants
  5. : a group of organisms that can interbreed and produce fertile offspring

5 True/False questions

  1. Binomial system of nomenclatureclassification based on evolutionary, phylogenetic relationships

          

  2. Inheritance of acquired characteristicsfeatures that resemb;e eachother but are not based on homologous genes, those related by descent from common ancestral genes

          

  3. Phylogenythe 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

          

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