Heterogeneity in effective population size and its implications in conservation genetics and animal breeding


Effective population size (N e ) is defined as the size of an idealized population undergoing the same rate of genetic drift as the population under study. It is a central concept in population genetics and used extensively in the design and monitoring of conservation and breeding programs. It is most often assumed that genetic drift effects are homogeneous… (More)
