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) N e m =(1- .15)/4* (.15) N e m = 1.4167 or about 1.4 migrants per generation are needed to restore gene flow. 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- (1-p)2Ne Ne= 4NmNf/(Nm+Nf) 1/Ne=1/t1/Ni...
