Difference between base layer LS jersey and long sleve jersey?

What's the difference between base layer LS jersey and regular long sleve jersey?
Also, do any of you choose to use a base layer LS under a regular SH jersey?
Sorry for my ignorance but I haven't ridden much in cold.

A long sleeve jersey has zippers and pockets. A long sleeve baselayer is more like a long sleeve undershirt but typically made of a wicking fabric. I usually wear a baselayer underneath something else, and a long sleeve jersey either by itself or over a baselayer. I've also worn baselayers under short sleeve jerseys.

The normal approach to layering is a wicking layer by your skin, then an insulating layer, and finally a wind and rain/snow blocking layer. Sometimes the final two layers are combined in a single garment.
