Abstract : In the paper a number of simulation results relating to the theory of neutral alleles are discussed. In particular, results derived from the distribution of Karlin, McGregor, and Ewens for the number and configuration of alleles in a sample of genes from a selectively neutral locus are considered. The problems discussed concern efficiencies of estimation, an approximation to the distribution of a test-statistic for neutrality, and the effect of changes in population size on an index of neutrality.
