In terms of real communities, despite the fact that the vegetation has a significant amount of time to complete the ecogenetic transformation of ecotopes, the climax usually does not occupy large territories, rarely prevails in the area of other communities, and is almost absent in many areas [7, 8].
In order to steady state of soil and preserve ecogenetic soil diversity, a number of measures are needed, including soil conservation.

The final section deals with the social implications of ecogenetic data as well as the applications of these data to risk assessment and risk management, public health, and regulatory policies.
Ecogenetics has emerged in large part because of the advancements in technology and informatics in the past 10 years.
There are quite prominent examples of ecogenetic relationships between variation in susceptibility and the infectious agents of malaria, TB, HIV-AIDS, cholera, and meningitis-otitis.
Ecogenetics fits into broad public health constructs for dealing with health risks of environment origin.
Ecogenetic models emphasize that philopatry increases the probability of producing offspring that are well adapted to local conditions in spatially heterogeneous environments (Greenwood 1987).
In conclusion, ecological constraints such as territoriality can explain to some extent why birds disperse from the immediate vicinity of their natal site, and ecogenetic models such as local adaptation can explain population-level philopatry.

Moreover, in intraspecific studies, molecular phylogenetic relationships may be incorporated into a partial Mantel test to test whether features are significantly associated with ecological factors (implying ecogenetic adaptation by natural selection) free of phylogenetic effects.
However, attempts to interpret a morphological phylogenetic tree (Thorpe 1985b) in terms of colonization sequence are compromised by ecogenetic adaptation to current selective pressures influencing the tree.
