genetic assimilation

Overview page. Subjects: Genetics and Genomics — Environmental Science.

The process by which a phenotypic character initially produced only in response to some environmental influence becomes, through a process of selection, taken over by the genotype, so that...

sterile male release

Overview page. Subjects: Genetics and Genomics — Environmental Science.

An approach to fly pest control, which is based on releasing sterile males with which females mate only once, producing eggs that do not hatch.

subpopulation

Overview page. Subjects: Environmental Science — Genetics and Genomics.

Breeding groups within a larger population or species, between which migration is restricted to a significant degree.

voltinism

Overview page. Subjects: Genetics and Genomics — Environmental Science.

A polymorphism in terms of whether or not the embryos produced by an insect enter diapause (q.v.). For example, in Bombyx mori univoltine strains produce only diapause embryos. Bivoltine...
