terminology in phylogenetic systematic

Post by aquaticorganism » Sun Feb 12, 2006 2:25 pm

Hi, :D

I do not understand the meaning of some word below when I read the book of phylogenetic systematic. I can not see them in dictionary. Can you help me to understand them? :oops:

1. synapomorphies
2. autapomorphies
3.homoplasies
4.symplesiomorphy
5.holapomorphy
6.paraphyletic

Do you know how differ from phenogram, cladogram and evolution tree?

Thank you for your help!
