  • The expected distribution of t for trees of two tips was determined, and centiles of the distribution used to construct a distribution for Embedded Image . Given values are mean, standard deviation, and median of Embedded Image for one, two, and three loci. The true value of g was 0.0. Θ was assumed to be known without error. The result for 100 loci is an approximation based on 1000 replications using values of t drawn at random from the distribution for each locus.
