Unformatted text preview: the revised effective size? Assuming that you can equalize the number of breeding males and females in the next generation, and return the effective size to 30, what is your revised estimate for the loss of heterozygosity? (Show all work) (4 pts) 8c) Finally, you hope to counteract the loss of variation by establishing some gene flow between the two existing wombat colonies. You observed an Fst of 0.15 between the two existing colonists. How many migrants per generation are implied by this degree of differentiation? (Show all work) (4 pts) Some useful equations: Fst= (Ht-Hs)/Ht D12= Ht - Hs Fst =1/(4Nem + 1) N e m =(1- F st )/4F st Ht/Ho= (1-[1/(2Ne)])t F = (2pq-Ho)/2pq E(n)= m-Σ (1-p)2Ne Ne= 4NmNf/(Nm+Nf) 1/Ne=1/tÂ1/Ni...
