Simulations to show the genomic consequences of population crashes of different strengths and timing. a π; b ρ; c θW; d Tajima’s D. Each plot shows simulations of different size population crashes at 10, 100, 1000 and 10,000 generations before present (x-axis), with post-crash population sizes of 10−2, 10−3, 10−4 and 10−5 (lines). ac y-axis is log10 scale. Dashed lines indicate two ρ values that were zero. Error bars= ± one standard error. Based on five simulations per scenario except decline of 10−5 1000 gens ago where only two simulations resulted in sufficient segregating sites for calculating statistics
