Academic Journal
The article discusses a study which investigated population genetic studies using molecular markers by surveying the archives of the journal "Heredity" from 1992 to 2012 through the Scopus database using a combination of genetic and diversity as keywords. Topics include the classification of the research articles, the quantification of genetic diversity in population genetic studies, and the implications of the study results for population genetics.

    Pitcher's thistle (Cirsium pitcheri Torr. ex Eaton (Torr. & Gray)) is a Great Lakes endemic that in Canada is designated as threatened at both the provincial (Ontario) and national levels. Management plans will benefit from conservation genetic data, which can provide insight into population...

    The extent to which taste receptor specificity correlates with, or even predicts, diet choice is not known. We recently reported that the insensitivity to sweeteners shown by species of Felidae can be explained by their lacking of a functional Tas1r2 gene. To broaden our understanding of the...

    Parameters suggested by Barrai et al. (1992), including the random isonymy ( I r), surname diversity (α), migration index ( v), and entropy ( H) and redundancy ( R) of surname distribution have been estimated in ten district populations of the Rostov oblast. Their weighted mean values are the...
