The frequently of the major allele for albinism is higher in smaller population than in larger ones. Why might this be so?

Summary Introduction

To explain: The reason for the higher frequency of major allele for albinism in smaller populations.

Introduction: According to the Hardy-Weinberg rule, the genotypic and allelic frequency of a population would remain constant in several generations in the absence of the evolutionary change. In a smaller population, the frequency of the allele is found to be higher.

Explanation of Solution

In the larger population, the chances of random mating are higher as compared to the smaller population. The chances of natural selection, migration and mutation would be higher in the larger population. In a smaller population, inbreeding reduces the integration of a new gene...
