El exito replicativo esta a cargo de la adaptedness, entendida como el estado de estar adaptado (y, por lo tanto, equivalente a la definicion ahistorica de adaptacion o a lo que Gould y Vrba, 1982, llaman aptation o adecuacion).
I address adaptedness due to natural and human selection that caused race and cultivar formation; evolution of heterosis, genetic diversity, and heterotic gene action; corn hybrids including combining ability, heterotic groups and patterns; and mules as the hybrid corn prototype.
morphological characters reflect adaptedness and that speciation is only
On lira aussi la lettre, datee du 10 juillet 1852, que Delany adress a Douglass, dans laquelle il expose la problematique centrale de son ouvrage, Condition, Elevation, Emigration, and Destiny of the Colored People of the United States (1852): <<We never have, as heretofore, had any settled and established policy of our own--we have always adopted the policies that white men established for themselves without considering their applicability or adaptedness to us.
Genotypes generating human emotions evolved within an environment of evolutionary adaptedness (EEA) involving small, seminomadic groups.
7) When persuasion with r egard to an action or a judgment is not the orator's primary concern, as is indeed the case with most ceremonial speeches, success will depend even more on the convenance (the speech's appropriateness, what makes it fitting), the adaptedness of text to context, of speech to occasion, to a set of circumstances.
Their focus then is on the selection pressures that caused the design of an adaptation, like the African savanna, which is referred to as the environment of evolutionary adaptedness.
Concerning the relationship of this grand theory to the currently hegemonic theory of organic evolution--neoDarwinism (which all too many think of as the theory of evolution)--the latter has a small, particular role in general evolution, namely to explain the adaptedness of biological systems to their local environments (Salthe, 1998).
An evolutionary psychological explanation of this fact is: (1) in the environments in which humans evolved, the environments of evolutionary adaptedness (EEA), those whose psychological states led to behaviors that created differential status, wealth, and power over others thereby had a selective advantage in reproducing, and (2) past natural selection for reproductive success has made it part of human nature to overstate one's own success-making attributes and belittle competitors' success-making attributes.
broteroi populations will presumably generate local variation in the degree of adaptedness of the plant to its pollinators.
To explain the adaptedness of languages, the hearer's rather than the speaker's selection seems essential (cf.
Consequently, 20-yr height and survival of these populations measure adaptedness to both the biotic and abiotic environment.
It is the basic, defining fact about species that they act not for their own sake, but for the sake of the ongoing adaptedness of their constituent organisms.
Gibbon, with his usual accuracy, as if commenting on the Apocalypse, has referred to the physical adaptedness of the soil of Rome to such an overthrow," and then cites Gibbon's reference to the fact that "the country, which from religious motives, had been chosen for the origin and principle scene of this conflagration, was the best adapted for that purpose by natural and physical causes; by its deep caverns, beds of sulfur, and numerous volcanoes.
And he is critical of evolutionary psychology's tendency to put forward adaptationist explanations of the emotions based on speculation through 'reverse engineering' as to what traits would have been selectionally advantageous in the environment of evolutionary adaptedness.
