Flashcards in Lecture 14 Deck (15):
The mating between relatives
Define Sexual Selection
The thing chooses their partner
Consequence of Inbreeding
Some recessive alleles are mutations and some mutations are bad and if they inbred that mutation code becomes enhanced and more common
Does the frequency of homozygotes increase or decrease?
Does the frequency of heterozygotes increase or decrease?
Will Non-Random mating lead to evolution?
4 Evolutionary Processes
1. Natural Selection
3. Genetic Drift
4. Gene flow
Genetic Drift is all about…
Genetic Drift increase/decrease Genetic Diversity
If you lost a population what else do you lose?
Define Genetic Drift
Random loss or fixation of alleles by chance over time
Genetic Drift is strongest in __________ population
Few individuals go colonize and establish isolated populations
A sudden reduction in the number of (different) alleles in a population
