Since the ability to clone animals gives another way to preserve species, this could help for the breeding process. It has been noted that with the ability to clone animals, endangered species can have their population numbers increased in a short time. How would this impact these population from the perspective of genetics/ the gene pool?

    $\begingroup$ The title should be the main question quickly phrased and should not set the field of study. Obviously saying "it is a biology question" is really not helpful as everything on this site is about biology. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Apr 27 '16 at 23:47
  • $\begingroup$ Then, you should always show your effort to try to answer the question otherwise the question is off-topic. I will vote to close as you haven't shown your efforts to answer the question and will remove the vote close as soon as you added this info. You can have a look at the homerwork question policy here. $\endgroup$ – Remi.b Apr 27 '16 at 23:48

    $\begingroup$ @kristy I have prepared an answer for you but, as this is homework, I would like to see more effort from you, some tips for you to think about: How do you think cloning could be used? Why would cloning be useful? Where can cloning step in? Why would this impact genetic variation? $\endgroup$ – rg255 Apr 28 '16 at 7:25
