Genetic variability in natural populations, evidence in support of the selectionist view
Genetic variability in 6 neotropical anopheline species, analyzed, by zymogram technique, has been described. The results support the ‘selectionist’ theory of the evolutionary significance of high levels of molecular diversity in natural populations.
