Assortive mating in a population in which two alleles are segregating

  title={Assortive mating in a population in which two alleles are segregating},
  author={Peter O'Donald},
THAT positive assortive mating, the tendency of like to mate with like, occurs in man has long been established. The phenomenon was studied by Fisher (1918). More recently, assortive mating has been found in several polymorphic wild populations. Cooch and Beardmore (i) found assortive mating in the Blue-Snow Goose complex, and O'Donald (1959) has observed assortive mating among the pale and intermediate and dark phases of the Arctic Skua. In this paper, systems involving assortive mating in… CONTINUE READING
