comment Heterozygosity and overdominance
Am taking another stab at this. I think that derivations in the refs are simpler and overall it's an interesting question.

comment Is there a name for this principle in biological contexts?
Max. parsimony is essentially Occam's razor. Maybe that's the best we can do.

comment Heterozygosity under genetic drift
My bad. It was just a cite for the variance. Sorry.

comment Can oil be used instead of water in preparing wet mounts for microscopy?
One thing is that the slide must be viewed quickly, otherwise spores tend to bunch up adhere to other structures. FWIW.

comment Heterozygosity under genetic drift
@Remi.b: If Var(x)= E(x(x-1)+E(x)-E(x)^2 = E(x(x-1)) + E(x)(1-E(x)) then -E(x(x-1)) = E(x(1-x))= E(x)(1-E(x)) - Var(x). See, e.g., math.ubc.ca/~feldman/m302/binomial.pdf – daniel 11 mins ago

Actually I think I was talking about numerical taxonomy in the context of fungi but this answer was useful. Thanks.
