Glossary of "Evolution (4th ed.)" by Futuyma & Kirkpatrick (2017)
- Of an allele, the extent to which it produces when heterozygous the same phenotype as when homozygous; may be contrasted with a recessive allele, one that is phenotypically detectable only when homozygous. Dominance of a species describes the extent to which it is numerically or otherwise predominant in a community.
Glossary of "Life (9th ed.)" by Sadava et al. (2011)
- In genetics, the ability of one allelic form of a gene to determine the phenotype of a heterozygous individual in which the homologous chromosomes carry both it and a different (recessive) allele. (Contrast with recessive.)
