Estimates and standard deviations (shown between parentheses) were computed from 1000 bootstraps replications. N indiv: number of individuals; N pop: number of populations; LS: Shared Lineages analysis (see [36]); mY: estimator of admixture (see [37]); dashes represent groups that were not included in the calculation of ancestry
