Other non-biological replicators can be clays, especially kaolinite, which are created from…

    Genetic drift is a random process in which allelic frequencies change because of differences in survival and reproduction from generation to generation. Genetic drift is more likely to differ the gene pool of small population. In contrast, genetic drift is less likely to alter the gene pool of larger population. For example, an endangered species with a small population can be impacted greatly by genetic drift because of a loss of genetic variation. The last mechanism of evolution is…
