Allele frequencies are calculated according to the method by Lynch and Milligan [58]. a Total number of alleles per locality. b Number of alleles with frequency greater than 5%. c Percentage of loci (of frequency > 5%) that are polymorphic out of the total 62 loci. d Number of alleles unique to a single population. e Mean expected heterozygosity. See Table 1 for locality names.
