The AMOVA was performed using 10,000 permutations in ARLEQUIN 3.5. It is indicated the FST values derived from both microsatellite (below the diagonal) and cpDNA data (above the diagonal and in italics) for each pairwise comparison across estuaries. The asterkisk indicate P < 0.05, after Bonferroni corrections. Underlined values represent the unbiased FST estimates following the ENA method that correct by the presence of null alleles on FST estimation (95% CI after 10,000 replicates).
