Question about polyhedra

I have a question about some information I found on Wikipedia about polyhedra (

According to them, you can classify symmetric polyhedra by their Isogonal, Isotoxal and Isohedral properties.

So I conclude:

Semi-regular : Isogonal
Uniform : Isogonal
Quasi-regular: Isogonal & Isotoxal
Noble : Isogonal & Isohedral
Regular : Isogonal & Isotoxal & Isohedral

But can I assume that every Semi-Regular polyhedron is also a Uniform polyhedron and vice-versa? In other words: can there be a difference between polyhedra that are classified as Semi-Regular and Uniform?
Are there more differences between the classifications as well?
