Allelic richness (AR), gene diversity, and observed heterozygosity (Ho) are given. For the Galápagos hawk, we present measures from each population individually using all 17 polymorphic loci, and then we present measures for all populations combined at the 13 loci that were also used to genotype Swainson's hawks [34].
