ABC estimation of our index of environmental heterogeneity (α) from genetic diversity simulated in species with small and large carrying capacity (K) when all other parameters of the model are known. The true value of α is shown on the x-axis and its estimation (as the mode of its posterior distribution resulting from an ABC analysis) is shown on the y-axis.
