In: Genetics of Colonizing Species, Academic Press, New York, has been cited by the following article. This book describes the genetic mechanisms that govern the development and evolution of animals and plants. In particular, the book focuses on animal and plant species evolving in isolated habitats and species colonizing new territories. This approach--studying "founder" populations--enables geneticists to more readily identify some of the evolutionary pressures . It was a book, The Genetics of Colonizing Species (TGCS) published in and edited by H. G. Baker and G. L. Stebbins. This page book comprises 25 research papers and discussions from the first symposium sponsored by the International Union of Author: Patricia Werner.

The Limnanthes taxa show genetic variation patterns to be quite predictable from the geographical range of various “metapopulation units” and breeding systems; the wide-ranging species (L. alba, L. douglasii) are more variable and heterozygous than the inbreeding and narrowly distributed species (L. floccosa, L. bakeri).Cited by: 7. Professor Parsons uses the colonizing species as a case study in the dynamics of microevolution at work in living systems. The colonizing species, a lie, and potentially disruptive force in a 'naïve' habitat, is studied primarily as an ecological phenotype and more generally as an ecological behavioural by: Abstract. Since its presumed origin on the Pacific coast of Asia, Haliplanella luciae (Verrill) has become distributed throughout the northern hemisphere. The dispersal of the species has been effected through attachment to oysters shipped commercially (Verrill, ), transportation on ship bottoms (Stephenson, ), and attachment to floating seaweed (Williams, a).Cited by: Baker and Stebbins’s book The Genetics of Colonizing Species aimed to draw together scientists from a variety of disciplines to provide a conceptual framework for the study of species introductions. A goal of their volume was to examine how studies on biological invasions could be used to provide insight into basic research questions as well as to develop practical strategies Cited by:
