Stochastic Evolutionary Dynamics: Drift vs. Draft.
In a small handful of papers in theoretical population genetics, John Gillespie argues that a new stochastic process he calls "genetic draft" is evolutionarily more significant than genetic drift. This case study of chance in evolution explores Gillespie's proposed stochastic evolutionary force and sketches the implications of Gillespie's argument for philosophers' explorations of genetic drift.
