A rare allele, according to this principle, does not disappear from a large population merely because it is rare. That is why certain rare traits, such as albinism and cystic fibrosis, persist for endless generations. For example, albinism in humans is caused by a rare recessive allele a. Only one person in 20,000 is an albino, and this individual must be homozygous (a/a) for the recessive allele. What is their frequency?

Most colonies also have distinct periods of gamete formation and sexual reproduction. Colonies propagate also by fragmentation, as seen on coral reefs during severe storms. Pieces of coral may be scattered by wave action on a reef, becoming seeds for formation of a new reef. For these modular animals, age structure and sex ratio are difficult to determine. Changes in colony size can be used to measure growth rate, but counting individuals is more difficult and less meaningful than in unitary animals, which are independently living organisms.
