To the prevailing biochemical/physiological classification of mechanisms of organismal resistance to toxicants, an additional molecular dimension is proposed. Predictions are developed regarding the relative prevalence of different classes of mutations and are found to compare favorably with reports from the literature. In particular, point mutations in target loci were the dominant form of resistance for both lab and field selection. Amplifications of target loci were less common than… CONTINUE READING
