New Latin, from Ancient Greek πᾶς (pas, "every, all") + μίξις (mixis, "mixing, mingling") + Latin -ia

Examples

  • For mammals with relatively restricted mobility such as lemmings, even small-scale barriers (e.g., large rivers) can form the borders between subspecies [32], while a very mobile animal such as the Arctic fox, which readily moves between continents and islands on sea ice, appears to be relatively panmictic (i.e., shows little genetic structuring) at the circumpolar scale [33].

  • It is not known, for example, whether the whale shark is represented by a single worldwide panmictic population or by numerous, reproductively isolated populations.

  • By analyzing data sets simulated with no population structure (i.e. derived from a single panmictic population) we estimated the probability of Type I error of their procedure to be 0. 125\%.

  • In total, 15,200 data sets that spanned the spectrum from highly structured (with high θ and low migration) to highly admixed (with low θ and high migration) to panmictic (with one unstructured population) were produced.

  • Our results suggest that despite an almost panmictic population, we can detect two distinct populations of B. pseudomallei that conform to biogeographic patterns found in many plant and animal species.

  • We refute the hypothesis that African lions consist of a single panmictic population, highlighting the importance of preserving populations in decline rather than prioritizing larger-scale conservation efforts.
