Additional Notes

Classification:

  • Grades vs Clades
    • Grade: level of adaptation; organisms of similar grade due to similar adaptations due to convergence (e.g., the "dog" grade or the "anteater" grade that goes across marsupial/placental distinction) [2].
    • Clade: a group descended from one common ancestor; a genetic lineage (e.g., the placental clade vs. the marsupial clade) [3].
