Can anyone point me in a direction to find what the predicted rates of
genetic decay (both loss of alleles and heterozygosity) in declining and
increasing populations.  Since the popualtions are either in a continual
state of decrease or increase I am looking for a non-equilibrium model.
Thanks in advance and anyone who would like a summary can e-mail me or if
response is large enough I will post it.

molecular bio, etc
