Recent studies on the general diversity of the animal world and analysis of segregation and mutation loads on the basis of allozyme variation in populations show two opposite tendencies. In many reports, the diagnostic value of allozymes for differentiation of various taxonomic forms is overestimated, and conclusions important for taxonomy and evolution are inferred from the study of a few individuals without taking into account the gene-geographic distribution of rare alleles in populations [1… CONTINUE READING
