  • Means and standard deviations of 100 single-locus datasets with 25 individuals were sampled for each population and 500 bp or 1000 bp, respectively. In all cases in which the homozygosity within a population is not less than the homozygosity between populations, the FST estimator fails. Those replicates have been discarded. N shows the number of replicates remaining. The values shown are for population 1; those for population 2 are similar.
