The effect of linkage between a chromosome mutation producing partially sterile heterozygotes and a neutral locus in reducing the gene flow at the neutral locus is studied using a two-population deterministic model. Chromosome mutations are more efficient in reducing gene flow with low migration rates than with high ones. The interaction between high values of partial heterozygote sterility and low recombination rates can produce, in the low migration pattern, a drastic reduction of gene flow… CONTINUE READING
