The relationship between the concepts of genetic diversity and differentiation

  title={The relationship between the concepts of genetic diversity and differentiation},
  author={H. Gregorius},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
Diversity as a measure of individual variation within a population is widely agreed to reflect the number of different types in the population, taking into account their frequencies. In contrast, differentiation measures variation between two or more populations, demes or subpopulations. As such, it is based on the relative frequencies of types within these subpopulations and, ideally, measures the average distance of subpopulations from their respective lumped remainders. This concept of… CONTINUE READING
