Example sentences for: intraspecific

How can you use “intraspecific” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In general, among-population sequence divergence increases with decreasing latitude, even excluding previously glaciated regions (Martin and MacKay 2004), and studies of intraspecific genetic diversity in Neotropical birds have revealed a higher level of phylogeographic subdivision compared to temperate species (Remsen 1997, Lovette and Bermingham 2001).

  • Moreover, although only a few of these 39 pairs (see Table 1 in Johnson and Cicero [2004]) had sufficient sampling to assess intraspecific variation in mtDNA sequences, these typically showed paraphyly in mtDNA haplotypes.

  • Therefore, there are still too few cases with adequate sampling of intraspecific diversity for sister species pairs to know how common paraphyly is, although a recent meta-analysis found that 17% of bird species deviated from mtDNA monophyly (Funk and Omland 2003).

  • From these data, they conclude that most North American bird species can be discriminated via molecular diagnosis of individuals and propose a “standard sequence threshold” of ten times the mean intraspecific variation (yielding a 2.7% threshold in birds) to flag genetically divergent taxa as “provisional species.”

  • To avoid statistical bias due to the differences in numbers of sequences composing each category, we randomly selected 200 genes among the native genes and 200 among the transferred genes (when their number was greater than this value), for the intraspecific species analysis.
