Project Summary : to enable community organizations in four diverse regions of Thailand to take collective action for adaptive landscape and seascape management for socio-ecological resilience - through design, implementation and evaluation of grant projects for global environmental benefits and sustainable development
Investigating cancer and its proliferation through genetic changes and ignoring the adaptive landscape is most likely futile.
Because of the complexity of majority-minority relations in all of their permutations, and because of the difficulty or even impossibility of designing successful ethnic strategies in the constantly changing adaptive landscape, Salter is appropriately humble about his analysis; the case presented is "anything but complete".
An adaptive landscape method was used to study a combination of the relative number of tines and relative tine length.
The form of an adaptive landscape for developmental characters is determined by a combination of ecological factors (determining how selection acts on adult phenotype) and developmental interactions.
In their model, Perelson and Macken assume protein evolution occurs as a direct uphill walk on an adaptive landscape -- or, in a biological interpretation, as a series of adaptive point mutations in the DNA codes that translate into a series of progressively fitter proteins.

This idea has remained well-entrenched, even with recent recognition that hominin origins took place in a woodland environment and that the adaptive landscape in Africa fluctuated dramatically in response to short-term climatic shifts.
However, the question remains about the accuracy in the initial mimetic signal required for the evolution across the valley of low fitness intermediates in the adaptive landscape.
Project Summary : to enable community organizations in Sri Lanka to take collective action for adaptive landscape management for socio-ecological resilience - through design, implementation and evaluation of grant projects for global environmental benefits and sustainable development in three ecologically sensitive landscapes: Knuckles Conservation Forest and its bufferzone, Coastal region from Mannar Island to Jaffna Peninsula, and Bellanwila-Atthidiya and Muthurajawela wetlands
It has been shown that selection proceeds uphill in an adaptive landscape determined by the geometric mean fitness (soft selection) or the arithmetic mean fitness over all environments encountered (hard selection) (Via and Lande 1985; van Tienderen 1991).
In general, fitness matrix (3) describes an adaptive landscape with two equal peaks (at genotypes AABB and aabb) separated by an adaptive valley.
