A set of two-locus descent measures are derived for loci on sex-linked and autosomal loci, with a population structure which includes finite population size, migration, and extinction and recolonization. Two-locus descent measures which involve sex chromosomes increase much faster with inbreeding than those for autosomes. For loose recombination, the two-locus descent measures are shown to be closely approximated by the product of the appropriate one-locus measures. The distribution and… CONTINUE READING
