Figure S1. Clonal diversity of the alate and apterous A. gossypii samples collected from 2004 to 2009 in the four locations in southeastern France. R is the index of clonal richness, D* is the unbiased Simpson's complement and is the probability that two individuals chosen at random have different genotypes and can thus be considered as an exact measure of the clonal heterogeneity and V is the Simpson evenness index and is an equitability index that describes the distribution of the components and the relative amount of clones. The confidence intervals derive from jack-knifing procedures (p = 0.05).
