Since subpopulation B has an extremely high average coancestry and relatively large distances from the other subpopulations (see also Table 1), removal of this subpopulation causes the largest within-diversity ([GD.
NL] of related pairs of lines is a linear function of their coancestry coefficient (Melchinger, 1993).
Unweighted pair-group method based on arithmetic means (UPGMA) clustering of cultivars was based on modified coancestry coefficients (Reynolds et al.
The inbreeding coefficient of a 4x-2x hybrid is a complex function of the coancestry of the parents, the inbreeding of the parents, the coefficient of double reduction in the tetraploid parent, and the frequency of single exchange tetrads in the diploid parent, and depends on the mechanism of 2n pollen formation (Haynes, 1992; Haynes and Potts, 1993).

The average inbreeding and coancestry in the reference population were 0.
A molecular coancestry approach (Nomura, 2008)--also implemented in NeESTIMATOR--was used for estimating [n.
The rapid advances in genome sequencing and high-through put DNA techniques have led to new and more precise measures of genetic diversity and coancestry and inbreeding coefficients [62].
The characterization of spatial distribution of genotypes inside the population was carried out using the coancestry coefficient ([[theta].
