Different types of effective population size

Just as there are several models constructed on different foundations used to describe how genetic variation changes due to finite population size, there are several ways to define the effective population size such that it can be estimated. This is because the effective population size is really defined as a consequence of the models constructed to predict the behavior of genetic variation in populations. To see this, let's consider the inbreeding and variance effective population sizes.
