The variation in the population is clinal—at either extreme of the population's geographic distribution, typical individuals are clearly different, but the transition between them is seamless and gradual.

The first two principles indicate that the current geographic distribution of a species is determined by how its ecological limitations are related to the environmental conditions it encounters. Species with similar requirements will be found together in the same locations.

Personal names, given or surname, as cultural characteristics, as ethnological or religious patterns, as indications of the geographic distribution of families and inbreeding, etc. Analysis of isonymy, the quality of having the same or similar names, is useful in the study of population genetics.

allopatry Populations or species with nonoverlapping geographic distributions. Contrast with sympatry.
alpha-helix Literally the first spiral arrangement of the genetic DNA molecule; regular coiled arrangement of polypeptide chain in proteins; secondary structure of proteins.

Darwin's interest in the geographic distribution of species was further stimulated by the Beagle's visit to the Galapagos, a group of young volcanic islands 900 km west of the South American coast.
