3 simple taxonomy questions

Post by KindnessDrops » Sun May 23, 2010 3:54 am

Give the appropriate term for the definition stated.

1. A taxonomic system based on all phenotypic similarities, equally weighted and without regard to evolutionary relationship.

2. A taxonomic system based only on the traits that reflect the order in time in which branches arose in a phylogenetic tree.

3. A taxonomic system that uses phenotypic similarities as well as judgments about homologies along a branching sequence.
