what are single copy genes? Do they unanimously map back to Arabidopsis? how are they useful in phylogenetic comparisons?

so a single-copy gene is one that has a single paralog and this in turn can be orthogous to other sequences in different species?

Yes, a single copy gene has one physical location in the genome and can have orthologs in different species.
