Genetic drift occurs in all populations of non-infinite size, but its effects are strongest in small populations. Genetic drift can have major effects gehetyczny a population is sharply reduced in size by a natural disaster bottleneck yenetyczny or when a small group splits off from the main population to found a colony founder effect.

Natural selection is an important mechanism of evolution. But is it the only mechanism? In fact, sometimes evolution just happens by chance. In population genetics, evolution is defined as a change in the frequency of alleles versions of a gene in a population over time. So, evolution is any shift in allele frequencies in a population over generations — whether that shift is due to natural selection or some other evolutionary mechanism, and whether that shift makes the population better-suited for its environment or not.

What is genetic drift? Genetic drift is change in allele frequencies in a population from generation to generation that occurs due to chance events. To be more exact, genetic drift is change due to “sampling error” in selecting the alleles for the next generation from the gene pool of the cryf generation. Although genetic drift happens in populations of all genetuczny, its effects tend to be stronger in small deyf.

Let’s make the idea of drift more concrete by looking at an example. As shown in the diagram below, we have a very small rabbit population that’s made up of 8 8 8 brown individuals genotype BB or Bb and 2 2 2 white individuals genotype bb. Initially, the frequencies of the B and b genetyczjy are equal. Genetic drift at work in a small population of rabbits. By the third generation, the b allele has been lost gemetyczny the population purely by chance. What if, purely by chance, only the 5 5 5 circled individuals in the rabbit population reproduce?

Maybe the other rabbits died for reasons unrelated to their coat color, e. In the surviving group, the frequency of the B allele is 0. In our example, the allele frequencies of the five lucky rabbits are perfectly represented in the second generation, as shown at right. Because the 5 5 5 -rabbit “sample” in the previous generation had different allele frequencies than the population as a whole, frequencies of B and b in the population have shifted to 0.

This is another way in which alleles are “randomly sampled” in populations of finite size. Whenever two individuals reproduce, they have a certain probability of producing offspring with a particular genetuczny.

But if they produce a non-infinite number of offspring, those offspring may deviate by chance from the expected ratios and thus, may not accurately reflect their parents’ allele frequencies. For example, let’s consider the case where two Bb rabbits reproduce with each other. On average, they should produce BBBband bb offspring in a ratio of 1: But that’s the case on average.

In any given case where two rabbits have a litter, their non-infinitely sized litter which might be around 6 6 6 8 8 8 baby rabbits may not fit the 1: In many cases, the ratio will be off by 1 1 1 or 2 2 2 rabbits, and in some cases, it may be off by considerably more. If we have a huge group of reproducing rabbits, these differences will get balanced out, but if we have a small group of rabbits, they can have a significant impact on allele frequencies.


From this second generation, what if only two of the BB offspring survive and reproduce to yield the third generation? In this series of events, by the third generation, the b allele is completely lost from the population. Larger populations are unlikely to change this quickly as a result of genetic drift.

If only half of the 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 -rabbit population survived to reproduce, as in the first generation of the example above, the surviving rabbits 5 0 0 5 0 0 of them would tend to be a much more accurate representation of the allele frequencies of the original population — simply because the sample would be so much larger. To see how this works, let’s focus on how the white allele was lost from the 1 0 10 1 0 -rabbit population.

In this small population, there were only two white rabbits genotype bband both of these were unable to reproduce and pass on their alleles.

In a population of 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 rabbits with the same allele frequencies, there would be 2 0 0 2 0 0 white rabbits rather than just 2 2 2. How likely is it that every single white rabbit, by chance alone, would fail to pass on its genes to the next generation? This is a lot like flipping a coin a small vs. If you gsnetyczny a coin just a few times, you might easily get a heads-tails ratio that’s different from 5 0 50 5 0 5 0 50 5 0. If you flip a coin a few hundred times, on the other hand, you had better get something gejetyczny close to 5 0 50 5 0 5 0 geneyczny 5 0 or else you might suspect you have a doctored coin!

Allele benefit or harm doesn’t matter. That is, a beneficial allele may be lost, or a slightly harmful allele may become fixed, purely by chance. A beneficial or harmful allele would be subject to selection as well as drift, but strong drift for example, in a very small population might still cause fixation of a harmful allele genethczny loss of a beneficial one. Natural selection and genetic drift both result in a change in the frequency of alleles in a population, so both are mechanisms of evolution.

However, the two processes differ in how they cause allele frequencies to change. Genetic drift causes evolution genetycczny random chance due to sampling error, whereas natural selection causes gehetyczny on the basis of fitness. In natural selection, individuals whose heritable traits make them more fit better able to survive and reproduce leave more offspring relative to other members of the population.

That is, an individual with higher fitness is more likely to pass on its genetic material alleles to the next generation.

The alleles that helped make dgyf individual more fit will likely benefit the genwtyczny in a similar way and should increase in frequency in the population over time. Alleles that improve fitness are likely to increase in frequency, while alleles that reduce fitness will decrease in frequency. Think back to the rabbit population discussed above. What if the white rabbits were more gemetyczny than the brown rabbits better able, on average, to survive and reproduce in the environment in which they lived?

In the example, the only two white rabbits in the population failed to reproduce, resulting in a loss of the beneficial alleles they carried. Gwnetyczny result was purely due to chance and illustrates how genetic drift can result in the loss of beneficial alleles from a small population.

The bottleneck effect is an extreme example of genetic drift that happens when the size of a population is severely reduced. Events like natural disasters earthquakes, geneyyczny, fires can decimate a population, killing most indviduals and leaving behind a small, random assortment of survivors. The allele frequencies in this group may be very different from those of the population prior to the event, and some alleles may be missing entirely.

The smaller population will also be more susceptible cryf the effects of genetic drift for generations until its numbers return to normalpotentially causing even more alleles to be lost. How can a bottleneck event reduce genetic diversity?

Imagine a bottle filled with marbles, where the marbles represent the individuals in a population. If a bottleneck event occurs, a small, random assortment of dryff survive the event and pass through the bottleneck and into the cupwhile the vast majority of the population is killed off remains in the bottle.


The genetic composition of the random survivors is now the genetic composition of the entire population. A population bottleneck yields a limited and random assortment of individuals. This small population will now be under the influence of genetic drift for several generations.

Elephant gennetyczny recently experienced a population bottleneck caused by humans]. The population has rebounded from a size of about 1 0 0 1 0 0 individuals to over 3 030, 3 00 0 0 0 0 0 today.

Over-hunting sryf as dyrf bottlenecking event, decreasing the population to a small number of individuals that represented only a miniscule fraction of the genetic diversity in the original population. Because Northern elephant seal colonies typically contain a single dominant male that mates with up to 1 0 0 1 0 0 females, all of the Northern elephant seals alive today may be able to trace their ancestry back to a single male!

Although the population has experienced an incredible recovery over the past century, scientists are concerned about the long-term survival of the seal population due to its reduced genetic diversity.

If a pathogen spread through the population, the seals could potentially be wiped out, as all of them might be similarly non-resistant that is, there might not be any existing alleles that conferred resistance. In a genetczny, genetically diverse population, there would be higher levels of standing genetic variation, making it more likely that some individuals would happen to have a gene variant that conferred resistance.

The founder effect is another extreme example of drift, one that occurs when a small group of individuals breaks off genetuczny a larger population to establish a colony. The new colony is isolated from the original population, and the founding individuals may not represent the full genetic diversity of the original deyf. That is, alleles in the founding population may be present at different frequencies than in the original population, and some alleles may be missing altogether.

Dryf genetyczny

The founder effect is similar in concept to the bottleneck effect, but it occurs via a different mechanism colonization rather than catastrophe. Simplified drryf of the founder effect. The original population consisting of equal amounts geneyyczny square and circle individuals fractions off into several colonies.

Each colony contains a small, random assortment of individuals that does not reflect the genetic diversity of the larger, original population. These small colonies will be susceptible to the effects of genetic drift for several generations. In the figure above, you can see a population made up of equal numbers of squares and circles. Random groups that depart to establish new colonies are likely to contain different frequencies of squares and circles than the original ddryf.

So, the allele frequencies in the colonies small circles may be different relative to the original population. Also, the small size of the new colonies means they will experience strong genetic drift for generations.

Ellis-van Creveld syndrome shows the founder effect in a human population]. For example, Ellis-Van Creveld syndrome whose symptoms include polydactyly, or extra fingers, and other physical abnormalities is much more prevalent in the Amish population of eastern Pennsylvania than the rest of the United Drtf population. The current Amish population can trace its ancestry back to a founding group that was composed of roughly 2 0 0 2 0 0 individuals, and since this founding event, the Amish henetyczny has remained more or less reproductively isolated from dryd rest of the American population.

It is believed that a single couple out of the original 2 0 0 2 0 0 founders carried a recessive allele for Ellis-Van Creveld syndrome.

Genetic drift, in combination with reproductive isolation, caused this allele to increase in frequency in the population. This led to a much higher prevalence of the syndrome among the Amish relative to the rest of the American population. Instead, drift changes allele frequencies purely by chance, as random subsets genwtyczny individuals and the gametes of those individuals are sampled to produce the next generation.

Every population experiences genetic drift, but small populations feel its effects more strongly.
