  • Mean over 100 simulation runs of outcrossing rate tf estimated on the assumption of inbreeding equilibrium according to varying mating scenario (t0, outcrossing rate in the final generation; tp, outcrossing rate in all previous generations). First line, f multilocus estimate using Wright’s inbreeding coefficient; second line, number of simulations out of 100 for which the hypothesis of inbreeding equilibrium could be accepted when using maximum-likelihood estimators of successive outcrossing rates.
