Other Mechanisms of Evolution
Lecture no. 4 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts
Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Explore some alternative mechanisms through which species can change, including genetic drift and gene flow, and the key role allele frequency plays in our understanding of evolution. You’ll also examine the Hardy-Weinberg principle, used by evolutionary scientists to determine whether a population is actually evolving, and which mechanisms are driving the evolution.
