All values calculated from data in [2], supporting material.

aSimple: diploid formula from [4].

bAveraged: average of estimates across biological replicates, ± standard deviation of estimates.

cML: maximum likelihood estimator, as suggested by Wang and Luo.

dOverall: estimate on overall seed counts.

eComplete quadrivalent model as derived from [3], with correct marker locations.
