1. Balanced polymorphism
A type of polymorphism where the many morphs are allele s. The polymorphism is maintained in a population rather than the norm of one allele eventually becoming the only allele in the population, because individuals who are heterozygous , or have two different alleles, are more adaptive (more "fit") than individuals who are homozygous , or have two copies of the same allele.
