Science / Marine Biology / Phenotype: The physical appearance of an individual that is the result of that individual's genotype and the interaction of the genotype with the environment during development. Hence, individuals with the same genotype may have different phenotypes in different environments. Compare genotype.
Science / Genetics / Pleiotropy: The phenomenon of variable phenotypes for a number of distinct and seemingly unrelated phenotypic effects. MORE
Science / Genetics / Heterogeneity: The production of identical or similar phenotypes by different genetic mechanisms. MORE
Science / Biology / Dominant: Refers to an allele of a gene that is always expressed in heterozygotes. MORE
Science / Biology / Genotype: The genetic (alleleic) makeup of an organism with regard to an observed trait. MORE
Science / Marine Biology / Phenotypic Plasticity: The capacity of an individual to produce different phenotypes under different conditions. Non-genetic potential variability within the range of a single individual. MORE
