Traits/AdaptaJons List at least two traits that are: A.  Shared by Charophyceans and Plants B.  Shared by all Land Plants C.  Unique to Bryophytes D.  Unique to Lycophytes E.  Shared by Pterophytes and Gymnosperms Explain why they are important. PhylogeneJc RelaJonships Draw a phylogeneAc tree that represents our current understanding of evoluAonary relaAonships between a moss, a lycophyte, a fern, and a gymnosperm. Use a charophyte alga as an outgroup. Label each branch point (node) of the phylogeny with 2 derived characters unique to the clade descended from the common ancestor represented by the branch point.
