FST (below diagonal) for the eight spatio-temporal samples from the 3 geographic populations studied along the Volta basin, with corresponding level of significance (based on 10,000 replicates). The non-significance of the test of Hardy [35] suggests that FST is more appropriate to describe genetic differentiation among these populations than RST.

Test significance: ns = non-significant, * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001.
