  1. Population size N = 100 throughout. Columns: c – rate of clonality, F IS,∞ = 0 – mutation rate, t N – genetic drift maximal expected convergence time, t c – reproduction maximal convergence time, t μ – mutation maximal convergence time, t I – convergence time to the mean \( \overline{F_{IS,\infty }} \) based on the model in [13], t II – convergence time to the mean \( \overline{F_{IS,\infty }} \) based on our model, t III – convergence time to full final distribution of \( \tilde{{F_{IS}}_{,\infty }} \). Rows: example parameter sets (compare Fig. 4). Bold: min (t c , t μ )
