What is a derived character?
A "derived character" is a trait that arose in the most recent common ancestor of a particular lineage and was passed along to its descendants.
Among a given group of organisms, the shared derived characters are generally the less common characters. The evolutionary interpretation is that these characters of organisms are more recently evolved. They are contrasted with primitive characters. Shared derived characters should have the same structure and function.
Derived characters may be present in members of one group of the line, but not in the common ancestor. For example, in comparing fish and mammals, fish have scales and mammals have hair. So having hair is a derived character for mammals, as only the mammals have ancestors with hair.
new traits that arise as a group evolves.
Characteristics that species have in common. Like, A elephant and a human both are warm blooded.

An example would be the chromosomes of chimpanzees...or letter D. ;)
Derived characters can be used to construct a cladogram. A cladogram is a diagram that shows the evolutionary relationships among a group of organisms.A cladogram is basically an evolutionary tree, much like a family tree.
It is true I had this question in my biology test in my freshman year....
cladogram is a diagram used in cladistics which shows ancestral relations between organisms, to represent the evolutionary tree of life. Although traditionally suchcladograms were generated largely on the basis of morphological characters, DNA and RNA sequencing data and computational phylogenetics are now very commonly used in the generation of cladograms
they are spelt differently
What is a phylogenetic classification system that uses shared derived characters and ancestry as the sole criterion for grouping taxa?
"Cladistics", or is it the bagel?
Ffuucckk you! Stop cheating!
the difference is that a polygenic character is is influenced by several genes and they show many variation, complex characters are influences strongly the environment and genes.
um mm i think its AAA well depending who or what the character is e.g homer Simpson's would be a fat lazy retardHope this helps :~)

A character not very involved
polygenic character are influenced by several genes, and they show many degrees of variation. Complex characters are influences strongly by the enviorment and by genes.
A round character has many traits, some of which may even be contradictory--a very complex individual
A character is a heritable feature that varies among individuals. An example would be flower color.A trait is a variant for character, such as white or purple colors for flowers.
Nuclear activity is a character of everything.
Hello there, Dominant and recessive traits can be tested by reproduction. For example, if I was to grow a tall pea plant and a short pea plant that are true breeds, and if I was to cross pollinate them to form a hybrid pea plant, the new pea plant offspring would exhibit the dominant trait out of tall and short (In this case tall). When reproduction occurs, two alleles for a given gene will be… Read More
The definition of primitive characters is characters that are defining members of a clade that people believe rose early in the evolution of the group. They can be the characters of a large group who share being early members.
analogous character similarities that are the same, but found in different species, thought to have arisen from convergent evolution
Character is the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual, or the distinctive nature of something. Phylogeny is the branch of biology that deals with phylogenesis, which is the evolutionary development and diversification of a species or group of organisms, or of a particular feature of an organism. -
Yes , it is mostly annelid character .
Most analogous structures are result of convergent evolution .
that all ty
No, not at all. No one factor determines such a complex thing as character.
Oxidation is a reaction in which a compound or molecule gains electrons thereby giving it negative character?
this statement is false!!------------------------------------------------Platoweb.com :)
Height, weight, eye color, intelligence and skin color.
need sunlight use energy reaction that's all i know
You can perform test crosses with individuals of known genotypes and analyse the offspring you get.
When a eukaryotic gene is inserrted into the prokaryotic cell would this gene express its characters?
It depends on how you insert the gene. If the proper promoters are also inserted the prokaryotic cell will produce the protein. This is how insulin is produced for diabetic patients.
Depends on the characteristic. Assuming you're talking about a very simple monogenic characteristic (ie. a characteristic which is dependent on one gene only) your dominant allele will always trump your recessive allele. So, one copy of your dominant allele is all that's needed to give you that characteristic (final genotype is either homozygous dominant or heterozygous), whereas you'd need two copies of your recessive allele (homozygous recessive) to get that characteristic. Much beyond that and… Read More

so some of us speak the ching chong language and others speak normal.
well you have bigfoot, hobbits has large hairy feet... giants.
Viruses, though nonliving, have characteristics of living things.
A Short answer is: oH, about 27,000 Genes.
When a new species arrived and competed for food, the original species evolved new beaks. They ate different food and survived
What type of graphic organizer makes it easy to compare and contrast different attributes or relationships associated with a character?
Which type of graphic organizer would help you identify the particular traits of a character in relation to a specific event in a play?
Labored Moist Deep Shallow Difficult Stertorous (sounds like snoring)
Why are most of your traits are not inherited according to the for a simple mono hybrid cross in which we look at character that is coded for by only one dominant allele and one recessive allele?
there are many other types of inheritance types such a polygenic, pleitrophy, codominance, etc. Also, some genes are linked (close together on the same chromosome) so that they stay usually together during crossing over ex: red hair and freckles, blonde hair and blue eyes
In 1970 the ad agency Needham Harper Steers approached Sid and Marty Kroffts about using their characters then simply stole them as what company's mascots?
Can split personality syndrome be caused by the patient's willingness to separate themselves from evil by creating an evil character to see themselves as good in comparison to the evil person?
No, split personality syndrome is caused more by a person not wanting to believe a horrible thing they've done. So to cope with the event they create another "person" and blame that person for the event.
