[…] All data were analyzed using R software []. To determine whether the initial genetic effective population size had an effect on the extinction probability of experimental populations, a Kaplan Meier survival analysis with a non-constant hazard based on the Weibull distribution was conducted using the survival package in R []. Fitness data were analyzed using linear mixed models with random slopes. Mixed model analyses were performed using the R packages nlme [] and lme4 []. The experiment ran for three years, thus year was entered as a blocking factor. Treatment (initial genetic effective population size) was modelled as a fixed factor and generation as a covariate.
