Abstract

Standard activities of adenosine deaminase, aspartate aminotransferase, lactate dehydrogenase and malate dehydrogenase, and levels of soluble body protein were determined for populations of G. affinis from 4 habitats classed as cold (ambient), hot, past-hot (thermal effluent received in the past)...

Abstract

A model (a diffusion equation method) is proposed in order to treat the shifting balance theory of evolution of Wright in quantitative terms. The model incorporates intergroup selection (or competition between demes) and epistatic interaction in fitness. Demes are assumed to consist of Nebreeding...

Abstract

Field observations in Tennessee on the non-pest species Tetraopes tetrophthalmus on its food plant Asclepias syriaca were used to demonstrate the hypothesis that food plants with patchy spatial distribution can influence the evolution of insects feeding on them into highly localized populations,...

Abstract

Wright's "shifting-balance" theory of adaptive evolution [see Proceedings of the 6th International Congress on Genetics (1932) 1, 356-366] is discussed with reference to Fisher's fundamental theorem of natural selection, Haldane's altruistic gene theory, and Kimura's neutral theory of evolution.

Abstract

In this discussion, the author reiterates his view that organismic selection (rather than genic selection) in subdivided populations is the guiding factor in evolution.

Abstract

The first two volumes of Sewall Wright's monumental treatise were reviewed in Animal Breeding Abstracts 37, 2116 and 39, 1331. It was originally intended that the third volume would complete the work, but it has now become necessary to extend into a fourth volume, which it is hoped will appear...
