The shift in population of peppered moths from 10% dark-colored moths prior to the advent of industry to 80% dark-colored moths after the advent of industry illustrates the process o microevolution and industrial melanism. Genetic drift is most likely to occur in a small population. If there is an absence of migration of breeding individuals among populations gene flow will not occur. Genetic drift may begin when a species become nearly extinct. Overharvesting, habitat loss, and earthquake may cause genetic drift. Small populations develop as a result of the founder effect and bottleneck effect which leads to genetic drift that affects gene pool frequencies. Misuse of antibiotics select for bacteria that are already resistant to antibiotics.

Unformatted text preview: When the ratio of 2 or more phenotypes remain the same in each generation it is called balanced polymorphism. The form of speciation dependent upon a geographical barrier is allopatric. Sympatric speciation can occur due to hybridization. The different species of Galapagos finches developed from a single mainland ancestral finch through adaptive radiation. The rejection of finch suitors with the wrong type of beak is a behavioral type of isolating mechanism. Characteristics of animal genitalia or plant floral structures which make mating with other species impossible are forms of mechanical isolation....
