Sorry, no etymologies found.
Right away, the book stimulated a useful discussion on embryogenesis, haploidy, diploidy, gastrulation, and neurulation.
How do haploidy-containing insect populations handle this issue?
Partial haploidy could be viewed as a eugenics ploy.
Because of the haploidy of the spermatozoids, there was only one signal identified for each BAC in 100% of the cells.
There’s no such thing as haploidy in those species, obviously, but when a certain threshold of homozygosity at multiple alleles is reached - in isolated human populations with few founders and little immigration, or in strictly bred dogs - the burden of genetic diseases tends to rise.
