Expected time to coalescence andF
ST
under a skewed oﬀspring distribution
among individuals in a population
Bjarki Eldon (with John Wakeley)
Mathematics and Informatics in Evolution and Phylogeny
June 10-12, 2008High variance in oﬀspring distribution
• broadcast spawning and external fertilization
• type III survivorship curves
• very large population sizes
• low genetic variation
• large number of singleton genetic variants

Conservative migration between ﬁnite number D of subpopulations
gives convergence to the structured coalescent

(i) multiple mergers coalescent processes may
better apply to some marine organisms
(ii) coalescent times are shorter than in the
standard coalescent
(iii) patterns indicating population subdivision can
be observed in DNA sequence data even if the
usual migration rate Nm is very, very large
