Population codes (Popn) as in Table 1. Ne estimated using the linkage disequilibrium (LD) and temporal method (temp) in NeESTIMATOR [47]. Where Ne was estimated as ∞, Ne LD = 500 was used for M. M was averaged over 6 loci in each sample. Mc values (critical M) were generated using five values of θ: two population-specific values based on NeLD and Netemp, and three general values using Ne of 100, 500 and 1000. * denotes significance of M tested against Mc (M lower than Mc) at p = 0.05. ns = nonsignificant.
