LDNE: a program for estimating effective population size from data on linkage disequilibrium.
This modal value was similar to the effective number of breeders ([N.sub.b] = 28) obtained from the linkage-disequilibrium approach in LdNe. The latter ([N.sub.b]) provides information about the effective number of breeding adults that produced the sampled cohort(s) (Waples and Do, 2010); however, relating [N.sub.b] to [N.sub.e] is problematic for iteroparous species because of the potential for overlap between sets of parents producing offspring in successive years (Waples, 2010).
LDNe produced negative estimates of effective population size (Ne) for all three allele frequencies (<0.01, <0.02, and <0.05) for the Charleston Harbor estuary.
