Abstract

The rate of approach to the equilibrium value of F ST was analyzed numerically for the finite island and one-dimensional stepping-stone models using computer simulation. For both models, this rate was shown to decrease with decreasing migration rate among subpopulations but in the case of the stepping-stone model, it takes thousands rather than tens of generations to reach the equilibrium. Unlike the island structure of migration, in the stepping-stone model an increase in the subpopulation number reduces the rate of reaching the equilibrium state.
