Alteration in allelic frequency due to unidirectional gene flow in animal populations: A Demonstration through speculative cases

Singh AK Dubey P      

Abstract

Animal migration has been one of the fascinating aspects of study for biologists. This phenomenon has been recorded in a number of animal species whether invertebrates or vertebrates. Those animals which move from one locality to the other as an intact population change their place but do not experience exchange of genetic contents from any other populations. Whereas, populations which somehow allow members of other populations to become their part as potential mates, show substantial change on the distribution of allelic frequencies and gene pool. The present article describes the way the gene frequency of a population gets changed due to unidirectional migration of organisms from a large to a small population.
