Additional field(s): Environment & Ecology
English term or phrase: deme
Definition from Hypermedia Glossary Of Genetic Terms:
A locally interbreeding population.

Example sentence(s):
  • Basically, the virtual world where migrations take place is constituted by a matrix of demes. Each deme has its own environmental characteristics according to the input files. Splatche
  • Key components of this simulation model include: (i) a three layer intra-deme population structure: hunter-gatherers, non-dairying farmers and dairying farmers. (ii) Population genetic simulation of a LP allele under selection, and an undrifted allele signifying general genetic background. (iii) Intra and inter-deme gene flow and sporadic longer distance migration (following a Gaussian random walk process). UNIVERSITY COLLEGE LONDON
  • The application of the island model is limited because it does not in fact contain explicit geography: migrants are equally likely to have come from any deme in the population. Oxford Journals

Definition from Melestarikan Alam Indonesia:
Interbreeding secara acak dari populasi lokal

Example sentence(s):
  • Ditinjau dari genetika, populasi dapat didefinisikan sebagai deme yaitu interbreeding secara acak dari populasi lokal. Namun sangat sulit menggambarkan deme di alam bebas. Jadi konsep deme masih bersifat teoritis dan sulit diaplikasikan di alam. - Melestarikan Alam Indonesia
