Measuring differentiation among populations at different levels of genetic integration

This (provisional PDF) looks interesting. The not-unexpected conclusion seems to be that deltas between populations are larger when considering multi-locus genotypes (as opposed to population gene frequencies).
This new approach to the analysis of genetic differentiation among populations demonstrates that the consideration of gene associations within populations adds a new quality to studies on population differentiation that is overlooked when viewing only gene-pools.
