Natural Selection Constrains Neutral Diversity Across a Wide Range of Species

bioRxiv

Jun 9, 2014

Russell B Corbett-DetigTimothy B Sackton

Abstract

The neutral theory of molecular evolution predicts that the amount of neutral polymorphisms within a species will increase proportionally with the census population size (Nc). However, this prediction has not been borne out in practice: while the range of Nc spans many orders of magnitu...read more
