Heterozygosity and Genetic Distance

Just a short query,

Does anyone know of any theoretical studies concerning the relationship
between expected heterozygosity in a hybrid population and the genetic
distance (Nei's Ds, Da etc.) between the two parental populations? Is there
a method to estimate expected heterozygosity or gene diversity in a
crossbred population given a knowledge of the genetic distance between the
two progenitor populations? I am thinking in particular about these
parameters as estimated using data from microsatellites.

Thanks in advance.

David.
