Here again we see that the first equation shows that the variance in allele frequencies among many identical replicate depends in the effective population size. By turning the equation around, we can then define how big the effective size is by quantifying the variance in the change in allele frequencies among a group of replicated populations. This definition provides the variance effective population size.

Why make a big deal about distinguishing between the inbreeding and variance effective population sizes?
