New Scientist;6/29/91, Vol. 130 Issue 1775, p44
Focuses on effect of isolating a group from the main population of the population. Genetic divergence; Effect on the reproductive compatibility between isolated and main groups of species; Application of this theory on fruitflies or Drosophila pseudoobscura.

    Founding isofemale lines from wild collected females is a basic tool for investigating the genetic architecture of Drosophila natural populations. The method permits the analysis of quantitative traits under laboratory conditions, with a much broader scope than the mere evidence of a significant...

    The number and identity of fish species occurring at a site at a particular time provide basic information for assessing biological integrity, inferring fish assemblage - environment relationships, and determining biodiversity patterns. Conclusions are often dependent on howsufficiently species...

    The breeding structure of populations has been neglected in studies of Drosophila, even though Wright and Dobzhansky's pioneering work on the genetics of natural populations was an attempt to tackle what they regarded as an essential factor in evolution. We compared the breeding structure of...

    Since 2004 the oriental fruit fly, Bactrocera dorsalis (Hendel) has become widespread and economically important in Wuhan, Hubei Province, central China. In this article, the population dynamics of B. dorsalis were monitored using methyl eugenol-baited traps during 2008-2009 in Wuhan. Adults...

    The term "micro-evo-devo" refers to the combined study of the genetic and developmental bases of natural variation in populations and the evolutionary forces that have shaped this variation. It thus represents a synthesis of the fields of evolutionary developmental biology and population...

  • Population Dynamics Constrain the Cooperative Evolution of Cross-Feeding. Bull, James J.; Harcombe, William R. // PLoS ONE;2009, Vol. 4 Issue 1, p1 

    Cross-feeding is the exchange of nutrients among species of microbes. It has two potential evolutionary origins, one as an exchange of metabolic wastes or byproducts among species, the other as a form of cooperation known as reciprocal altruism. This paper explores the conditions favoring the...

    The new dynamical game theoretic model of sex ratio evolution emphasizes the role of males as passive carriers of sex ratio genes. This shows inconsistency between population genetic models of sex ratio evolution and classical strategic models. In this work a novel technique of change of...
