What is taxonomy? State the purpose of taxonomy and provide a 2 or 3-sentence explanation of how the sub-discipline developed. Who is Linnaeus?
Write 5 or 6 sentences (or create a labeled diagram) outlining the similarities between Evolutionary Taxonomy and Cladistic Taxonomy.
Write 5 or 6 sentences (or create a labeled diagram) outlining the differences between Evolutionary Taxonomy and Cladistic Taxonomy.
Look at the simplified evolutionary tree in Figure 1 of the lab and answer the following questions:
Which plant groups have vascular tissue?
Which plant groups have spores?
Which plant groups have seeds?
Which plant groups have flowers?
Think about whether mosses have vascular tissue or not. Given your knowledge of this, why does a moss plant stay small and close to the ground?
Both a seed and a spore land on the ground, but the leaves on the ground prevent them from contacting the soil. The seed grows into a plant, while the spore perishes. Explain why.
Cycads and conifers have seeds, but do not produce flowers to attract pollinators. Still, pollen must be transferred in order for fertilization to take place, and for seeds to develop. List and describe some ways that pollination can occur in these plants.
thes (1964) defines the Syntagm as an elongated mixture of signs. Within semantic analyses, this would be something like a sentence, where each is interwined to the other terms within the phrase. The Syntagm is likened to the system, which means other words within the mind, as in the case of the relations between “learning” and “internship” (Barthes, 1964, p. 58). Barthes goes further upon these minds by connecting them Semiologically to different systems, e.g. food. In food system, the systematic level becomes the various bags within a particular level (i.e. types of desserts), whereas the syntagmatic level becomes the menu choices selected for a full meal (Barthes, 1964). Denotation and Connotation The words denotation and connotation were used by Barthes for investigating the correlation between systems. Semiological system can be thought of as consisting of an expression, a plane of content and a relation between the two (Barthes, 1964). A connotation then unravels how one system can act as a signifier of this first relation, most especially how it represents the expression within the first system (Barthes, 1964). These elements were importantly useful for unravelling relations among systems of symbols, instead of just relations between elements. SEMIOLOGY AND ADVERTISEMENT The major common concepts in a highly distinctive market always comprise of marketing, advertising and communication. Especially, advertisements mainly bring the language, photo graphics, colours and other symbols for its own usage to make a product known and its grandeur on the customers and outside. In the current world, advertising is a large scale business and is a cogent part of the national economy in several sovereign countries. By definition, advertising refers to a form of communication, whose author or sponsor sends information to a recipient with the denotative intention to sell an idea to the prospective customer. This process has its specialness and it is connected to both propagandistic model of communication defined by McQuail and persuasive concept of communication put forward by the Semiotician Jarmila Doubravová (Doubbravova, 2002). A popular linguist Guy Cook, (2001) examines advertising as a “parasite discourse”, because it takes over the contents, forms, authors as well as recipients of other discourses (similarly as the literary criticism depends on literature and the Sport News – on sport) (Cook, 2001). In fact, Judith Williamson indirectly builds on the idea of “parasite discourse” by Dyer’s characterization of advertising importance as something that uses the elements of real life and aims to c>GET ANSWER
