Problem:
Discuss the issues related to genetic diversity: mutations, sexual reproduction, migration, and population size.
Solution:

Genetic diversity is a branch of Biology which refers to large number of different species that can be found on earth as well the diversity within a particular species. The long term survival of each species is directly linked to the genetic diversity of the species in question. Genetic diversity of a particular species ensures long term survival because it can deter fatal diseases that can affect a particular species. Biologists have come up with a number of issues that are related to mutation, sexual reproduction, migration and the size of the population. Issues in each of these areas are discussed below:

Mutations:
Mutation refers to permanent alteration of DNA sequence of the gene. This alteration is a result of changing or altering the amino acids in the gene which is the building block of a DNA strand. Mutation ...
