For calculation of demographic units a generation time of one year was used. The mutation rate per locus per year was set to 2.9856 × 10-5. See main text for further explanations. The demographic units are: population size (θ in effective individuals, splitting time (t) in years, migration rates (Nm) in effective individuals per year. Estimates of the peak of the posterior parameter distributions (mode) are presented along with low and high bounds of the 95% highest posterior densities (HPD95L/H).
