Punctuated equilibriumis a theory in evolutionary biology which
proposes that once species appear in the fossil record they will become stable,
showing little net evolutionary change for most of their geological history.
the practice and science of classification. It is the branch of science
concerned with classification, especially of organisms; systematics
Phylogeneticsis the evolutionary branching process may be depicted as
a phylogenetic tree, and the place of each of the various organisms
on the tree is based on a hypothesis about the sequence in which evolutionary
branching events occurred.
