We consider the impact of a colonization process on the genetic diversity and spatial structure of a geographically subdivided population. A stepping-stone model combined with coalescence theory is used to predict the evolution of sequence divergence and genetic parameters. We first derive analytical results for coalescence times in a population undergoing logistic growth. We next consider a stepping-stone model in which demes are successively colonized, starting from a first deme at one of the… CONTINUE READING
