The estimates of GST were calculed using the Hamilton and Miller’s method [21, eq. 10] and the Ennos’s method [43, eq. 5a] in Avicennia germinans (black mangrove) and Rhizophora mangle (red mangrove) across four Panamanian estuaries. The comparison of FST, FIS and outcrossing level (t) between A. germinans and R. mangle did not show significant differences between species (Kruskall-Wallis ANOVA, P>0.05, N=4).
