each species is given a name in Greek or Latin consisting of a capitalized name indicated the genus and a lower case name indicating the species
structures that develop though convergent evolution
often used in phenetics
indicate a common evolutionary origin, regardless of how the structure appears
process through which one taxon gives rise to many others that exploit availableniches.
two or more discrete phenotypes in a sympatric population
repeated sequences of 1–6 base pairs of DNA. High mutation rates result in lots ofpolymorphisms – in other words, there are lots of different alleles to examine in a microsatellite. Thesecan indicate genetic diversity within populations of the same species.
Zink et al. conclusion
dispersal is happening without human intervention.
