    Human Population Genetics has been an on going field of biology that has been evolving much like the populations that are studied themselves. It looks to show the evidence of human origin, and through a common ancestor how we are more related then not. Through extensive research on the subject many studies like the Genographic Project and the Human Genome Diversity Project have answered some questions about how modern humans evolved, migrated, and became the racial identities they are known as today

    Population bottleneck is an evolutionary event in which a large part of a population or species is died or otherwise cannot reproduce, which increases genetic drift that can cause big losses of genetic variation for small populations. However, the amount of drift is inversely proportional to the population size, population bottleneck result a smaller population with reduced genetic diversity. Dropped genetic variation implies that the population will most likely be unable to adjust to new selection

    The study of heredity is what is referred to as genetics. Genetic diversity is therefore described as any variation in the genes, chromosomes, nucleotides or sometime change in the whole genomes of an organism. Though genome is not well branded term for many, it is the entire balance of DNA within the cell or organelles of the organism. When one talks of genetic diversity in its most elementary level, it is represented by differentiation in the sequence of nucleotides that form the DNA within the

    experiments testing the validity of hypotheses that derive from the core of evolutionary theory. Oliarus Polyphemus, the subterranean insect lineage that lives in lava tube caves on Hawaii Island, is ideal for studying the effects of natural selection and genetic drift. Known as Hawaiian cave planthoppers, these obligate cavernicoles live in the Hawaiian archipelago, which is subject to frequent volcanism and rapidly changing landscape dynamics. This leads to interconnected systems of lava tube caves and

    for the variations to be considered scientific instead of just personal prejudices. By the 1970s American geneticist R.C. Lewontin began testing the concept of race by studying genetic variations worldwide. He found that race only accounted for five to ten percent of the overall genetic diversity. Proving that on a genetic level, race had no taxonomic significance on our species (Larsen 123,124). In 1775 German anatomist Johann Blumenbach published a thesis on the differences of race at the University

    shape the genetic make-up of not only humans but all animals. One disaster can change an entire population’s structure, allele frequencies, and outlook. Hurricanes are a type of natural disaster that can demonstrate two specific examples of genetics which are population bottlenecks and genetic drifts. A specific example of how bottleneck effects and genetic drift can occur in areas where hurricanes are prevalent in is Hurricane Katrina. When looking at Hurricane Katrina, the population bottleneck

    organismal change over a period of time, resulting in genetic modification; it is the development of life. Evolution cannot take place in one individual’s lifetime; rather it is a population-level process that takes place over many generations. This scientific process depends on mutations, or random changes in a species DNA sequence. Evolution is broken down into three mechanisms that drive the process of evolutionary change: Natural Selection, Genetic Drift, and Migration (Wenzel 2015). Mutations can
