  abstract =     "spatially-structured populations described as a
                 network, and examines the properties of these networks
                 in terms of their affect on fixation of neutral alleles
                 due solely to genetic drift. Individuals are modelled
                 as two allele, one locus haploid, diploid and
                 tetraploid structures. The time to fixation for a
                 variety of network configurations is discovered through
                 simulation. The concept of hyperfixation is introduced,
                 which refers to when time to fixation for a network of
                 n nodes occurs more rapidly than the corresponding
                 panmictic n node structure. A hyperfixation index, h,
                 is developed that attempts to characterise a spatial
                 arrangement such that when h < 1 hyperfixation will
                 occur. Issues regarding fixation with ploidy
                 independence, and possible improvements to the
                 described hyperfixation index.",
