neutral theory of evolutionNeutrale Theorie der Evolution (ger.)

  • A theoretical position according to which large parts of evolution are due to changes in the frequencies of selectively neutral genes rather than natural selection.

    Kimura (1968) and King and Jukes (1969) presented the neutral theory of evolution, which states that molecular evolution occurs primarily through the random fixation of selectively neutral mutations rather than natural selection

    Both the neo-Darwinian genetic theory of natural selection and the neutral theory of evolution are specific theories which assume natural selection to be an essential evolutionary factor.
