figure S1 - Observed (bars) and expected (gray lines) mismatch distributions of Finnish populations of bank voles. a), b) and c) refer to populations of bank voles with native mtDNA type (GLA); d), e) and f) Sotkamo population with both mtDNA types and g) and h) populations of bank voles with red voles mtDNA type (RUT). See Figure 1 for information about localizations of populations. Values of the expansion parameters are only shown if the assumptions of the Sudden Expansion Model are fulfilled.

figure S2 - Differences in phenotype between populations. Differences in means (± SE) of body mass (g) and basal metabolism (BMR; mL O2 h-1) between Finnish populations of Myodes glareolus. Data are presented separately for females (circles) and males (triangles) captured along West (filled) and East (open figures) latitudinal gradients.
