Which of the following is the most likely explanation for the Amish having a higher incidence of polydactyly than the human population as a whole?
Answer Founder effect
A founder effect occurs when a small number of individuals become isolated from a larger population. Since the number of individuals in the founder population is significantly smaller than the number of individuals in the initial population, the genetic variation in the founder population will not match that of the population it split from.
