Unformatted text preview: oevolution: 1. Mutation - production of new alleles V 0 jate source for allele differences LI Without mutation there would be no new variations among members of a population for natural selection to act on. L1 Remember that mutations are random. 2. Gene flow - movement of alleles from population to population Movement of alleles among populations by migration of breeding individuals Can increase variation within a population by introducing novel alleles from another population Continued gene flow reduces differences among populations. 1!l This can PREVENT speciation from...
