‘RM-Sh.W.’ and ‘M-Sh.W.’ indicate the Shannon-Weaver diversity index of the MC extracted using the random sampling strategy and the advanced maximization strategy, respectively. ‘RM-Nei’ and ‘M-Nei’ indicate the Nei genetic diversity index of MC extracted by the random sampling strategy and the advanced maximization strategy, respectively.
