Unformatted text preview: alternative splicing ? 5. Define the three modes of speciation and give an example of each mode. 6. Below is a character table for three dragon species (A, B, and C). For each of the characters (number of legs, wings, fire breathing), there are two character states. The bolded character state is the apomorphic trait. Dragon X Dragon Y Dragon Z Number of Legs two / four four two two Wings present /absent absent present present Fire Breathing present /absent absent absent present Using the character table below, label the appearance of apomorphic traits on the phylogeny below.
