Through mutation and introgression followed by selection, modification of gene frequencies (genetic drift) and recombination, many species populations come to be composed of a number of freely interbreeding biotypes or races, each adapted to a particular combination of parameters in the habitat. Such a species is called polytypic species. When the component populations of a polytypic species are readily distinguishable by morphological characters, they are frequently called subspecies. This term is especially applied to geographical races of animal species. In plants, as already dis-cussed, races of a species that have distinct habitat requirements are commonly described as ecotype. From time to time a muta-tion occurs in a segment of a polytypic species, such as an ecotype or a subspecies, that limits its ability to exchange genes with other segments of the parent species. The population that develops from the mutant is reproductively isolated and is commonly recognized as a separate species population, distinct from the original species. Before further mutations completely restricts all gene exchange between the parent population and the new one, there may be for one reason or another some further crossing between them which is known as hybridization. Hybrids frequently fail because of the weakness of their phenotypes or through failure to reproduce nor-mally. In plants the doubling of the chromosome content or poly-ploidy of hybrid individuals sometimes overcomes this sterility. Species populations that occupy different geographical areas are said to be allopatric, where as those that occupy the same area are said to be sympatric. These terms are now usually applied only to related populations; allopatric populations are defined as segments of an original population that have become separated by spatial isolation. Lastly, ecospecies is an unit of classification which contains one or more ecotypes, which although interfertile but do not cross or, at least do not produce viable offspring, if crossed with ecotypes of other ecospecies.
Essay Writing Checklist
The following guidelines are designed to give students a checklist to use, whether they are revising individually or as part of a peer review team.
Introduction
  • Is the main idea (i.e., the writer's opinion of the story title) stated clearly?
  • Is the introductory paragraph interesting? Does it make the reader want to keep on reading?
Body Paragraph
  • Does each body paragraph have a clear topic sentence that is related to the main idea of the essay?
  • Does each body paragraph include specific information from the text(including quoted evidence from the text, if required by the instructor)that supports the topic sentence?
  • Is there a clear plan for the order of the body paragraphs (i.e., order of importance, chronology in the story, etc.)?
  • Does each body paragraph transition smoothly to the next?
Conclusion
  • Is the main idea of the essay restated in different words?
  • Are the supporting ideas summarized succinctly and clearly?
  • Is the concluding paragraph interesting? Does it leave an impression on the reader?
Overall Essay
  • Is any important material left unsaid?
  • Is any material repetitious and unnecessary?
  • Has the writer tried to incorporate "voice" in the essay so that it has his/her distinctive mark?
  • Are there changes needed in word choice, sentence length and structure, etc.?
  • Are the quotations (if required) properly cited?
  • Has the essay been proofread for spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc.?
  • Does the essay have an interesting and appropriate title?
