The term can also be applied to larger groups of organisms, as in "the adaptive radiation of mammals." adaptive strategies: A mode of coping with competition or environmental conditions on an evolutionary time scale.Species adapt when succeeding generations emphasize beneficial characteristics.Also used to describe the process of genetic change within a population, as influenced by natural selection.adaptive landscape: A graph of the average fitness of a population in relation to the frequencies of genotypes in it.Then, even if circumstances change such that it no longer provides any survival or reproductive advantage, the behavior will still tend to be exhibited -- unless it becomes positively disadvantageous in the new environment.adaptive radiation: The diversification, over evolutionary time, of a species or group of species into several different species or subspecies that are typically adapted to different ecological niches (for example, Darwin's finches).Peaks on the landscape correspond to genotypic frequencies at which the average fitness is high, valleys to genotypic frequencies at which the average fitness is low. adaptive logic: A behavior has adaptive logic if it tends to increase the number of offspring that an individual contributes to the next and following generations.

In a diploid cell there are usually two alleles of any one gene (one from each parent).Within a population there may be many different alleles of a gene; each has a unique nucleotide sequence.agnostic: A person who believes that the existence of a god or creator and the nature of the universe is unknowable.algae: An umbrella term for various simple organisms that contain chlorophyll (and can therefore carry out photosynthesis) and live in aquatic habitats and in moist situations on land. Algae range from macroscopic seaweeds such as giant kelp, which frequently exceeds 30 m in length, to microscopic filamentous and single-celled forms such as Spirogyra and Chlorella. For example, if a gene determines the seed color of peas, one allele of that gene may produce green seeds and another allele produce yellow seeds.

acquired trait: A phenotypic characteristic, acquired during growth and development, that is not genetically based and therefore cannot be passed on to the next generation (for example, the large muscles of a weightlifter).

adaptation: Any heritable characteristic of an organism that improves its ability to survive and reproduce in its environment.

Criss, on the other hand, just scared me.” Holly describes Criss as having an “explosive temper,” and, although she says he was never actually physically violent with her, she was “scared that something of that nature might be lurking around the corner.” Holly says she soon realized she and Criss didn’t have much in common and that she “found him to be unintelligent” and “virtually illiterate.” Holly’s Criss diss isn’t the only headline-worthy fallout from her book, however.… continue reading »
