Question and answer
Genetic drift, the founder principle, and the bottleneck effect all occur under what conditions?
Population bottlenecks occur when a population?s size is reduced for at least one generation. [ Because genetic drift acts more quickly to reduce genetic variation in small populations, undergoing a bottleneck can reduce a population?s genetic variation by a lot, even if the bottleneck doesn't last for very many generations. ]
