All the individuals have the same possibility to mate, no one has an advantage. Positive? individuals that have more similar phenotypic and genotypic characteristics tend to mate more often than predicted by their relative frequency Negative ? individuals that have less similar geno/pheno characteristics tend to mate more often than predicted by their relative frequencyGene: specific nucleotide sequenceAllele: any of the alternative versions of a gene Population: individual that can reproduce fertile off springsGene pool: all the alleles in all the loci in each individual of a populationPolymorphism: allele that encodes for two different types of phenotypeEvolutionary adaptation: is the ability to change a characteristic in order to adapt to a different environmentPhysiological adaptation: is the fact th
