Hardy and Weinberg Studied the gene pools of sexually reproducing populations. They investigated “Microevolutionary processes” that would change the frequency that genes occur in the “gene pool” of a population. Determined 5 conditions that would have to be met for the gene pool to remain at equilibrium

Microevolutionary Processes Drive a population away from genetic equilibrium Small-scale changes in allele frequencies brought about by: Natural selection --Mutation Gene flow --Genetic drift Non-random mating
