Paraphyletic
In taxonomy, a group is paraphyletic if it consists of the group's last common ancestor and all descendants of that ancestor excluding a few—typically only one or two—monophyletic subgroups. The group is said to be paraphyletic with respect to the excluded subgroups. The arrangement of the members of a paraphyletic group is called a paraphyly. The term is commonly used in phylogenetics (a subfield of biology) and in linguistics. The term was coined to apply to well-known taxa like Reptilia (reptiles) which, as commonly named and traditionally defined, is paraphyletic with respect to mammals and birds. Reptilia contains the last common ancestor of reptiles and all descendants of that ancestor—including all extant reptiles as well as the extinct synapsids—except for mammals and birds. Other commonly recognized paraphyletic groups include fish, monkeys and lizards.[1] If many subgroups are missing from the named group, it is said to be polyparaphyletic

Lignotuber
A lignotuber is a woody swelling of the root crown possessed by some plants as a protection against destruction of the plant stem, such as by fire.[1] The crown contains buds from which new stems may sprout, as well as stores of starch that can support a period of growth in the absence of photosynthesis. The term "lignotuber" was coined in 1924 by Australian botanist Leslie R. Kerr. Plants possessing lignotubers include Eucalyptus marginata
Eucalyptus marginata
(Jarrah), Eucalyptus brevifolia (Snappy Gum) and Eucalyptus ficifolia
Eucalyptus ficifolia
(Scarlet Gum) all of which can have lignotubers ten feet (3 meters) wide and three feet (one meter) deep as well as most mallees, and many Banksia

The Neogene
Neogene
( /ˈniːəˌdʒiːn/)[6][7] (informally Upper Tertiary or Late Tertiary) is a geologic period and system that spans 20.45 million years from the end of the Paleogene Period 23.03 million years ago (Mya) to the beginning of the present Quaternary

Period 2.58 Mya. The Neogene
Neogene
is sub-divided into two epochs, the earlier Miocene

During this period, mammals and birds continued to evolve into roughly modern forms, while other groups of life remained relatively unchanged.

Arctous
Arctous is a genus of plants[1] referred to by the common name "bearberry",[2] a name sometimes shared with certain species of the related genus Arctostaphylos, in particular, A. uva-ursi. Although the two genera are related, certain leaf characters, such a rugose-reticulate venation and fine teeth are more typical of Arctous than Arctostaphylos. Species within the genus include the following: Arctous alpina (L.) Nied.

Ribosomal DNA
Ribosomal DNA
Ribosomal DNA
(rDNA) is a DNA sequence that codes for ribosomal RNA. Ribosomes are assemblies of proteins and rRNA molecules that translate mRNA molecules to produce proteins. As shown in the figure, rDNA of eukaryotes consists of a tandem repeat of a unit segment, an operon, composed of NTS, ETS, 18S, ITS1, 5.8S, ITS2, and 28S
28S
tracts. rDNA has another gene, coding for 5S rRNA, located in the genome in most eukaryotes.[1] 5S rDNA is also present in tandem repeats as in Drosophila.[1] In the nucleus, the rDNA region of the chromosome is visualized as a nucleolus which forms expanded chromosomal loops with rDNA. These rDNA regions are also called nucleolus organizer regions, as they give rise to the nucleolus. In the human genome there are 5 chromosomes with nucleolus organizer regions: the acrocentric chromosomes 13, 14, 15, 21 and 22
