Quick Reference

A genetically isolated population, sometimes literally on an island although the term applies to any discrete population group that breeds (intermarries) only with others who belong to the group. Some ethnic groups that seek to preserve their ethnic identity behave as island populations even when living in an urban area among many other people Characteristically, island populations have a limited gene pool, within which harmful recessive characteristics may exist and be expressed increasingly, often in the phenotype after several generations.
