population size

Posted by ashley1 on 31 May 2012 at 12:40 GMT

Numbers of generations ranged from 60.9 to 82.2 across cultures and effective population sizes ranged from 5.3×105 to 9.9×106

How dose this range of Ne relate to the effective population size values in table S3?

Am I correct in presuming that these Ne values are the average of 15 observations (1 per serial dilution) across 15 replicates per condition?
