Domestic cat populations of former British colonies provide a unique set of data with which to evaluate the historical/immigration hypothesis because such populations are believed to sample an evolving parental United Kingdom stock at various times over the last three centuries. A regression of f coefficients upon separation time between founding populations, as inferred from historical records, is statistically significant. Selection is indicated as the mechanism underlying allele frequency… CONTINUE READING
