If you ask about quantity/numbers only, I would suggest using "the zone of low population density" or "intermittent zone" which in turn borders the "buffer zone" and "the zone of intermediate/high population density". The "buffer zone" is the zone between two different populations where the number of the animals in question is zero. J.Potts, M.Lewis "How ...

From the way I have read what you have written z(1-z) translated into a sentence would be the frequency of the neutral variant (z) times the frequency of all other possible variants (1 - z) at the particular time t. Nucleotide diversity is then the average of 2 times the sum of all of the frequencies of neutral variants (z) times the the frequency of all ...

The term allelic class is defined in Innan and Tajima (1997) Suppose that there are two nucleotides, say A and T, in a particular site.Then, we can divideDNA sequences into two classes: one class includes sequences with A and the other includes sequences with T in this site. We call such a class an allelic class Two elements that were misleading (for ...

This doesn't directly answer your question but my current research is on building models that combine ecological and evolutionary processes. Thompson (1998) is one of the earliest papers to talk about rapid evolution on ecological time-scales. And also a recent paper highlighting the interactions was Schoener (2011). Perhaps reading through these two ...
