Publisher Summary. The hierarchy that exists from organs to populations is critical to studies of variation. Although growth is a property of an individual, measurements of growth, and the variation in those measurements, exist at several obvious levels of organization: within individual and among individuals, as well as between/among whatever biological groups constitute the hypothesis being.

I for one have added this book to my collection of references on carrying out genetic studies on the underlying causes of disease and drug response in human and mouse populations.'' --Nature Genetics ''Not only did this editorial team assemble an impressive group of accomplished scientists as authors, but they produced a book of broad scope 4/4(1).

The basic tenet of spatial ecology, which includes metapopulation ecology as well as other approximations, is that the spatial positions of individuals and populations matter in the sense of influencing the growth rate and dynamics of populations and metapopulations and their competitive, predator–prey, and other interactions.

Mitochondrial population in mammalian cells. Preliminary results on the variation in the mitocho. Lower variation decreases mean fitness of populations (population growth rates), resilience, and long-term adaptability.

Genetic drift can threaten viability of populations not just by depleting variation, but also by replacing natural selection as the Cited by: DNA variation of the mammalian major histocompatibility complex reflects genomic diversity and population by:   The Tohoku earthquake drastically changed human activities in some regions of Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.
