Additional file 1:

Contains Figure S1 - Haplotype heterozygosity (HHe) in 17 populations. In table at the bottom of each plot displayed the average and the standard deviation of HHe in each population sample. The sample information of each population is shown in Table 1. HHe were calculated from haplotypes of 1-Mb windows, SD denotes standard deviation of the HHe values across windows.

Contains Figure S3 - Probability Estimations for the Number of Clusters, with Ten Repeats for Each K. The ordinate shows the Ln probability corresponding to the number of clusters (K) shown on the abscissa. A: showing maximal probability estimation of ten runs at each K (from K = 2 to K = 9); B: showing probability estimation at K = 2 to K = 18 in all ten runs.
