Genetic Drift: unpredictable, chance fluctuations in allele frequency that have a neutral effect on fitness; can occur in populations of any size, but the smaller the pop, the more clearly visible are the effects; the alleles in the offspring are a sample of those in the parents, and chance has a role in determining whether a given individual survives and reproduces.
