Abstract

The decomposition of the total gene diversity in a substructured population into its components is presented when the sizes on the subpopulations are not necessarily equal. The effect of unequal subpopulation sizes on the coefficient of gene diversity is also discussed. The sampling variance of this index of subdivision, derived here, can be used to measure the extent of the effect of subdivision more objectively.
