March 13, 2006 Lecture 63: Origin of Species Requirements of Hardy-Weinberg Large population size No gene flow (no immigration or emigration) No mutations Random mating No natural selection (reproductive success is random) Exceptions to Hardy-Weinberg are usually caused by: Mutations Genetic drift (allele fixation) Bottleneck effects (small pop) Founders effects (small pop) Immigration, emigration Sexual selection Evolution Descent with modification   What is a Species?
