In respect to this, what are Clinal distributions and what do they reflect?
This approach maps variation in the frequency of traits or alleles over geographic regions or worldwide. Clinal maps for many genetic traits show variation that changes gradually from one geographic area to another. This type of distribution may result from gene flow and/or natural selection.
Secondly, what is Clinal variation in anthropology? In anthropology we talk about clinal variation. And about 30 years after Huxley proposed the term clines, anthropologists came to recognize that pretty much all variation in the human species is clinal – that is to say, continuous and gradual across geography, and not discrete, not racial.
Similarly, what is clinical distribution?
Clinical Distribution (n.) 1. (MeSH)Systems for delivering hospital supplies, food, laundry, etc., to patient care areas.
What is Nonconcordance?
nonconcordant. Adjective. (comparative more nonconcordant, superlative most nonconcordant) Discordant; inharmonious; disconsonant; not in keeping with; not agreeable with; disagreeing. The patient’s left leg symptoms were nonconcordant with the right leg symptoms.
Why is human variation important?
What is human variation?
What is gradual variation?
Because of gene flow, groups living close to each other tend to be more visibly similar, while groups far away tend to be less so.
What is the ultimate source of genetic variation?
How do anthropologists explain human variation?
How does gene flow work?
Who came up with genetic drift?

What is cline in ecology?
Is subspecies the same as race?
Ernst Mayr wrote that a subspecies can be “a geographic race that is sufficiently different taxonomically to be worthy of a separate name.” Study of populations preliminarily labelled races may sometimes lead to classification of a new species.
