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. ]

User: Genetic drift, the founder principle, and the bottleneck effect all occur under what conditions? a. in small populations when one genetic trait becomes more common in a population purely by chance b. in small populations and result in a decrease in genetic diversity and/or an increase in the occurrence of specific genetic traits c. when a small group of organisms only reproduce with each other to create a larger population of organisms d. when the majority of a population is decimated and there are only a few remaining organisms left to rebuild the population
