1. Time trends in isolates (1926-1963). Four different communities designated as Hs, Ta, Os, and Hi (Yanase, 1966). The rapidity of break-up will vary according to the type of isolate, the resilience of the culture, and the nature and intensity of pressures from outside. The biological effects of that break-up will also therefore vary. Biological effects of break-up Isolation obviously affects breeding structures, migration patterns, and particularly genetic distance, its theory and actual applications, in other words factors affecting the evolutionary dynamics of a population.
