The effective founder effect in a spatially expanding population

bioRxiv

Jun 28, 2014

Benjamin Marco Peter, Montgomery Slatkin

Abstract

The gradual loss of diversity associated with range expansions is a well known pattern observed in many species, and can be explained with a serial founder model. We show that under a branching process approximation, this loss in diversity is due to the difference in offspring variance ...read more
