An ecotype typically exhibits phenotypic differences but is capable of interbreeding with other ecotypes.Population Density: Number of individuals in a population relative to space.PeruEncephalomyelitis, Acute Disseminated: An acute or subacute inflammatory process of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM characterized histologically by multiple foci of perivascular demyelination. Symptom onset usually occurs several days after an acute viral infection or immunization, but it may coincide with the onset of infection or rarely no antecedent event can be identified.
