In a revision of her 2012 PhD dissertation at the University of Copenhagen, Halvegaard explores two highly elaborate examples of audible revelations from the Nag Hammadi collection: the Thunder: Perfect Mind (NHC VI,2) and the Trimorphic Protennoia (NHC XIII,1), both of which describe goddesses descending in auditive terms as sound, voice, and word.
She had a long relationship with Fisher, who invited her to work with him on her problem of inheritance in trimorphic flowers.
Capitula with dimorphic or trimorphic florets; when trimorphic, the intermediate florets with corollas bilabiate to filiformbilabiate, as long as the styles or longer; staminodes generally present Gerbera 41b.
Trimorphic populations were on average four times larger ([Mathematical Expression Omitted]; range 25-3000) than non-trimorphic populations ([Mathematical Expression Omitted]; range 15-800; Wilcoxon signed-ranks test: Z = -2.
We determined these equilibria by running simulations until the proportion of populations remaining trimorphic consistently fluctuated around a constant value (usually 100-300 yr).
The home contained a large garden that enabled Nora to continue some of her genetics research on trimorphic flowers.
For example, species may show dimorphic or trimorphic wood-producing fibers in the juvenile stem, and only vessels and parenchyma develop as vascular cambium matures in older plants, such as Epiphyllum, Hylocereus.
They further predict that morph frequencies in trimorphic populations should not be consistently biased towards any particular morph (but see Heuch 1980; Morgan and Barrett 1988).
Figure 1c, on the other hand, demonstrates a numerical example of a trimorphic ESS for a truncated bi-exponential distribution of [Theta] with Q [greater than] 1.
paniculata may represent a weak heteromorphic incompatibility system because the observed patterns of pollen-tube growth parallel pollen-tube growth and seed-set patterns that occur in related species with strong trimorphic incompatibility.
We used Monte Carlo simulations to determine the effective population size below which genetic drift would overcome the effects of frequency-dependent mating on the maintenance of trimorphic population structure.
