Interspecific variation
Between different species. Applies to competition and variation.
1 of 8
Intraspecific variation
Between members of the same species. Applies to competition and variation.
2 of 8
mutation
A change in the genetic material of an organism. A gene mutation is a change in the base sequence of a gene, which will probably result in a change in the amino acid sequence. May affect overall shape therefore functioning of protein.
3 of 8
meiosis
cell division that shuffles the genes on the chromosomes so that no two gametes are the same. one diploid cell gives rise to four haploid cells.
4 of 8
gamete
A sex cell: sperm in males, eggs in females
5 of 8
normal distribution
Pattern of distribution, which shows as a bell-shaped curve on a graph, in which most values fall in the middle, with fewer at the extremes.
6 of 8
standard deviation
A measure of the spread of data about the mean
7 of 8
mean
Provides an average value and is useful information when comparing one sample with another.
