- adj. Of, pertaining to, or resulting from fluctuation(s)
Sorry, no etymologies found.
FFE systems can produce fluctuational spikes or excursions that might be very large or very small compared to their recent dynamical history, because the quasi-periodicity of the multiple underlying processes can produce random-seeming beats.
First we must, as de Vries has shown, distinguish real, genetic, variation from _fluctuational_ variations, due to environmental and other accidents, which cannot be transmitted.
