Many biological phenomena can be thought of and modeled in terms of generalized population structure, with individuals having a number of different possible states. Certain groups of states in such models are often connected by “migration” that occurs on a time scale that is much faster than the coalescent time scale. We show that, when viewed on the coalescent time scale, the structure associated with such groups of states collapses, and is replaced by a kind of averaging over the states. When… CONTINUE READING
