One basic assumption underlying the computation of the variance of the contributed number of gametes, V(k), for two-stage sampling of monoecious species is that there is no covariance between the number of female and male gametes contributed per individual within a set of monoecious plants.
In this section, we derive some theory for the accumulation of deleterious mutations in a randomly mating monoecious population under some necessarily simplifying assumptions.
