Introduction: According to the empirical regularity called Taylor’s law, the variance of population density in samples of populations is a power of the mean population density. The exponent is often between 1 and 2. Our experiments investigated how genetics, evolution, and environment shape Taylor’s law. Methods: Genetically different strains (wild type and hypermutator) of the bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens evolved and were assayed under different environmental conditions (with and without… CONTINUE READING
