Much biosystematic practice rests on the assumption that phenetic resemblances among populations and higher taxa reflect underlying genetic similarities. Through electrophoresis, it is now possible to measure genetic affinities among populations and species, using a variety of coefficients that quantify similarity across loci (Rogers, 1972; Nei, 1972). Consequently, theories treating the causes and significance of phenetic resemblances, the nature of biological species, and the genetics of… CONTINUE READING
