Abstract There are many problems relating to defining the terminology used to describe various biological relationships and getting agreement on which definitions are best. Here, I examine 15 terminological problems, all of which are current, and all of which relate to the usage of homology and its associated terms. I suggest a set of definitions that are intended to be totally consistent among themselves and also as consistent as possible with most current usage.
