We study the non-genetic inheritance of fertility from parents to offspring. For this purpose, we propose an exchangeable extension of the Wright-Fisher model. This extension allows us to introduce non-genetic fertility correlation in the forward in time process and to study its effects on the genealogies of individuals (or genes) samples. Since it is independent of the gene considered, this effect is uniform on the genome, even in diploid populations. For values of fertility correlation… CONTINUE READING
