With 1400 Nm, it has the most torque capacity of any Jaguar and features the Adaptive Surface Response (ADSR) that optimises traction on any terrain, the All Surface Progress Control, which makes for low speed cruise control for difficult surfaces and the latest Active Safety technology, including the Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB).
Adaptive Surface Response (ASR), developed from Land Rover's patented, award-winning Terrain Response technology, makes the AWD system even more effective in challenging conditions.
In this report we describe the adaptive surface corresponding to a suite of resistance traits in the annual morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea.
The presence of multiple adaptive peaks in the adaptive surface associated with resistance traits could generate nonindependence if different combinations of resistance were associated with different peaks (e.
These interpretations should be viewed as tentative pending more detailed experimental examination of the ecological and genetic factors responsible for the form of the adaptive surface.
It is easy to imagine how the adaptive surface portrayed in figure 1 could produce diffuse selection on resistance.

The concept of an adaptive surface for phenotypic characters was introduced by Simpson (1944), following Wright's (1932) similar formulation for gene frequencies.
Their topics include adaptive surfaces to reduce friction and wear in extreme environments, the plasticity of micrometer-scale single crystals in compression, inorganic nanotubes and fullerene-like structures, and shape memory polymers.
