Additional file 3:

Allelic richness predictions for individual populations of all four species based on our regression model (5), Ewens formula and coalescent approach. The population names are provided in Table 1. Regression - allelic richness predicted by equation (5). Ewens - allelic richness predicted by equation (3), θ calculated from the empirical source data set. Coalescent - allelic richness predicted by equation (3), θ estimated by coalescent from the empirical source data.
