Implications of Use of Wright's for the Role of Probability and Causation in Evolution

Philosophy of Science 79 (5):596-608 (2012)
Abstract
Sewall Wright ’s FST is a mathematical test widely used in empirical applications to characterize genetic and other differences between subpopulations, and to identify causes of those differences. Cockerham and Weir’s popular approach to statistical estimation of FST is based on an assumption sometimes formulated as a claim that actual populations tested are sampled from.
