I am very confused about how to interpret Table 8.3 in Smith's Evolutionary Genetics.
Is the GST in the table the same as the G,ST (with the comma), which is defined (pg. 156; Box 8.3) as "the probability that two genes drawn at random from the same deme are identical"? If so, is it not the same as Hs, the probability that two homologous genes from the same deme are identical? If it is the same, why do they differ?
And why would Hr be larger than Hs? That is, why would a gene be more likely to be identical with a gene from a different deme than the same deme? Doesn't this suggest negative assortment?
Thank you very much to anyone who can help!
