<p><b>a</b>) Histograms of the extinction time on an island population, Eqs. 12,13, for different migration rates in a log-linear plot. Population size is , fitness of mutant homozygotes is , fitness of heterozygotes is . The histograms stem from independent realizations with initial condition . Each arrow indicates the mean extinction time , Eq. 22 (). The values from simulation and the exact formula are in excellent agreement. With decreasing migration rate, the distribution of extinction times broadens significantly. <b>b</b>) For the same set of parameters we show how the (conditional) average extinction time of the mutant allele in a small population converges to the analytical result of the continent-island approximation with and variable ( independent realizations).</p
