We study two demes, and one- and two-dimensional populations. For two demes, the probability of fixation in the limit of high migration approximates that of a population with twice the size of a single deme: migration therefore greatly reduces the fixation probability. However, this behavior does not extend to a large array of demes. Then, the fixation probability depends primarily on neighborhood size (Nb), and may be appreciable even with strong selection and free gene flow (≈exp(-B·Nb) in one dimension, ≈exp(-B\\cdotNb) in two dimensions). Our results are close to those for the more tractable case of a polygenic character under disruptive selection."]},"author":[{"first_name":"Nicholas H","id":"4880FE40-F248-11E8-B48F-1D18A9856A87","last_name":"Barton","orcid":"0000-0002-8548-5240"},{"last_name":"Rouhani","first_name":"Shahin"}],"_id":"3648","quality_controlled":0,"intvolume":" 45","abstract":[{"lang":"eng"}],"date_created":"2018-12-11T12:04:25Z","date_updated":"2021-01-12T07:44:53Z","citation":{"apa":"Barton, N.
