comment What exactly is extreme heterozygosity and how does it work?
I am voting to close as you're asking to comment on a claim and a concept without providing the claim or the context in which you found this concept. Of course, I'll remove my vote close as soon as you link to the article.

Large population size tend to have higher heterozygosity and there is less drift to wipe out genetic variance. I guess this is what your paper is refering to given that you say extreme heterozygousity is popular in large population sizes. The term popular seems a little inappropriate though. You should cite correctly.

Can you please link to your article? I have never heard of "extreme heterozygosity" and it is pretty hard to say anything without seeing the paper.

comment How do we call a region of low carrying capacity?
Thank you for your answer. Reading your answer I reazized my question was unclear. I meant a zone of low carrying capacity surrounded by zones of high carrying capacity. I edited my post. Your answer seemed very correct as one possible interpretation of my previously answered question. Sorry, my mistake.

You're welcome. Yes, you are right, $C_6H_{12}O_6$ is the glucose.

comment How do we call a region of low carrying capacity?
I hesitated to ask my question here or on ELL.SE. I asked my question here as I am hoping that there is a term in used in the literature.

Welcome to Biology.SE. Have you tried to google your question? What have you found so far?

comment Why does all life use the same macromolecules in their genetic code?
I don't think it is a duplicate of "Why did abiogenesis only happen once?". The question above might be reformulated as: "Why hasn't any lineage evolve to use a different genetic code than the ancestor (or than the other lineages)".

comment Why does all life use the same macromolecules in their genetic code?
You are asking two relatively different questions in your post. I'd suggest to restrict your post to only one (and expand on it).

comment Why food is spicy in tropical countries?
You could ask "Do spices grow preferentially under warm climate than under cold climate?" (with eventually a working definition of "spices"). If the answer is yes, then you can ask on another post "why this is true?".

comment Why food is spicy in tropical countries?
Welcome to Biology.SE. I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because question is about sociology and ethnic studies, not about biology.

comment The heart of a Pigmy Shrew beats 1300 per minute then why is it so fast?
@AMR hum.... good point. Looking at the two figures, there seem indeed to have some weird values for life expectancy. They may consider the world records as averages very much depend on conditions/country. I don't know. The pictures were found on Google Image (there are tons of such graphs with the same crazy values for the dog). I am at home now, I don't have access to the peer-reviewed articles.
