For D. galeata populations, observed values of clonal richness and clonal diversity are followed in parentheses by the values obtained from datasets (N = 40) simulating random mating of genotypes detected in the analysed samples. Zmax: maximal depth; N: number of analysed individuals; MLG: number of observed multilocus genotypes; clonal richness: MLG/N; clonal diversity: the complement of the maximum likelihood estimator of Simpson's index, (1-D); polym. loci: number of polymorphic microsatellite loci analysed; alleles/locus: polymorphism of the studied loci given as the average number of alleles detected per locus; FIS: fixation index; He, Ho: expected and observed heterozygosity; HWE dev.: significance of the test of deviations from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium expectations (p < 0.05 after correction for multiple testing); N/A: data on overwintering not available. More details about conditions in the lakes, particularly on their chemistry, are given in [52].
