Ychromosome and organelle loci

What is the expected value of FST at equilibrium in the island model for Y-chromosome loci or mitochondrial and chloroplast (organelle) loci? A hint at how to approach the problem is to think about the autozygosity of loci other than diploid autosomes and then make adjustments to equation 4.52 that result in different versions of equation 4.53. What level of fixation among populations (FST) would be expected for these types of loci compared to biparentally inherited diploid loci? What causes the difference in levels of FST for the different types of loci?
