Linkage disequilibria between allozyme markers are surprisingly strong (maximum R = 0.
Finally, one might expect linkage disequilibria between the preference genes and neutral markers to be stronger than those between the markers.
Both revenues and expenditures adjust to correct disequilibria in their respective relations to GNP.
Based on the error correction model estimates, however, neither revenues nor expenditures respond to budgetary disequilibria, leading to rejection of both the tax-and-spend and the spend-and-tax models of the budgetary process.
It is convenient to have a general function of this type when designing algorithms to estimate disequilibria.
In case one of the cytonuclear disequilibria is zero, Table 2 can be used to determine the sample size needed in a study using dominant nuclear markers to obtain approximately the same variances for [D.
If independent evidence on the Mendelian inheritance of a RAPD marker is lacking, several limitations on the analysis of disequilibria exist.
Thus, linkage disequilibria complicate the search for key traits in the hybrid zone, because they impose concordance on characters that are subject to different degrees of direct selection.
where [Mathematical Expression Omitted] and [Mathematical Expression Omitted] are the gene frequencies and linkage disequilibria in the donor population D.
It would be better, in principle, to make a joint estimate of pairwise and higher-order disequilibria using data from all loci simultaneously; however, this is not practical.
In brief, for a diploid population with two alleles at a nuclear locus (A and a) and two alleles (M and m) at a mitochondrial locus, genotypic cytonuclear disequilibria are quantified by the departures of genotypic frequencies from expectations under random mating [i.
min]) to detect those observed disequilibria with 90% power is generally much larger than is currently available.
