    Here, h 2 is heritability, N e the effective population size, and σ w 2 the within-population phenotypic variance, which differs from σ a 2 because it includes all sources of variation within populations, including both non-additive genetic effects and environmental effects. Substituting this expression for σ w 2 into Equation \ref{}, we have: $$ \sigma_B^2 (t) = 2 \sigma_m^2 t = \frac{h.

Neutral Models in Biology Often Spark Controversy Neutral models are not new in biology, nor is a subsequent debate about their interpretation. Stephen Hubbell, in fact, modeled his mathematical approach after Japanese molecular geneticist Motoo Kimura's neutral theory of molecular evolution, which controversially posited that molecular Cited by: Concepts of Biology is designed for the introductory biology course for nonmajors taught at most two- and four-year colleges.

Neutral models with biologically plausible dispersal parameters and speciation rates lead to empirically realistic SACs.

Introduction The appeal of Hubbell's neutral theory () is that it makes quantitative predictions for patterns of biodiversity in terms of a small number of biologically meaningful by: Neutral ecology, in which species are functionally equivalent, is a relative newcomer.

Neutral ecology generally emphasizes the importance of stochastic, or random, processes in determining community structure and function, while niche-based ecology emphasizes the importance of deterministic processes.

Modeling, like inquiry more generally, is not a single method, but rather a complex suite of strategies. Philosophers of biology, citing the diverse aims, interests, and disciplinary cultures of biologists, argue that modeling is best understood in the context of its epistemic aims and cognitive payoffs.

In the science education literature, modeling has been discussed in a variety of ways, but Cited by:. One of the central goals of community ecology is to understand the forces that maintain species diversity within communities. The traditional niche-assembly theory asserts that species live together in a community only when they differ from one another in resource uses.

But this theory has some difficulties in explaining the diversity often observed in specie-rich communities such as tropical Cited by: This ambitious book presents a new, general neutral theory to explain the origin, maintenance, and loss of biodiversity in a biogeographic context.

Until now biogeography (the study of the geographic distribution of species) and biodiversity (the study of species richness and relative species abundance) have had largely disjunct intellectual.Ecological neutral theory has elicited strong opinions in recent years.

Here, we review these opinions and strip away some unfortunate problems with semantics to reveal three major underlying questions. Only one of these relates to neutral theory and the importance of ecological drift, whereas the others involve the link between pattern and process, the tradeoff between simplicity and Cited by:
