  • In order to clarify the effect of selfing on genetic variation in geographically structured populations, Wright's island model is generalized to include; the effects of extinction, mutation, selfing, and migration of pollen and seed. The equilibrium probabilities of identity by descent for two genes are obtained. It is found that selfing causes a decrease of the variation within colonies and an increase of the variation between colonies. Our model partly explains the "heterozygosity paradox… CONTINUE READING
