Clark; and Protein electrophoretic data from Nei (1973). those for the lycopod plant, the jumping rodent, and even the house mouse are notably higher. Table 1-4 shows that there is more evidence for the existence of races of house mice than humans, yet most human beings would have trouble differentiating a house mouse from Sweden from one from Mexico. Physical traits can sometimes belie the existence of races, but using genetic marker data we see that the lack of physical differences can belie their existence.

198–207. Reprinted with permission. , populations drift apart after separation). Both the time since the separation and the sizes of the daughter populations determine the levels of differentiation. As we are most interested in real populations, we also need to recognize that populations are rarely ever completely isolated. Admixture is the process of gene flow or gene migration of alleles from one population to another that occurs when individuals from reproductively isolated populations interbreed.

Though the expected p2 would also be a bit less than p0 , by the rules of binomial sampling, it could be a bit more than a bit less or a bit less than a bit less. FORENSIC DNA ANALYSIS The rules of the binomial sampling process from one generation to the next remain the same, but the results accumulate from generation to generation. In other words, allele frequencies change slightly from generation to generation and the result is a directional fluctuation, or drift in allele frequencies. Why is the fluctuation directional—wouldn’t we expect it to meander aimlessly up and down for ever?
