The enterprises of the agro-industrial complex complete the development of projects of an adaptive landscape system of agriculture, which have become an obligatory practical guide in organizing the activities of an economic entity and an effective tool for its control.
Investigating cancer and its proliferation through genetic changes and ignoring the adaptive landscape is most likely futile.
Wright's (1931) adaptive landscape is the inspiration for peaks of adaptation on our adaptive landscape.
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.
Note that this is different from an "adaptive landscape" over a space of phenotypic characters (Simpson 1944; Lande and Arnold 1983).
This idea dates to the 1930s, when evolutionary theorist Sewall Wright suggested evolution could be viewed as occurring on what he called an "adaptive landscape." Specific collections of genes, or genotypes, endow organisms with traits that help determine their adaptive fitness -- how well they can withstand the selection pressures in their environments.
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
Multi-peaked adaptive landscape for chikungunya virus evolution predicts continued fitness optimization in Aedes albopictus mosquitoes.
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
