Comparison between populations 7, 8, SR, and ST (verification of possible Y chromosome artifacts)

  • Values are means ± SE with the number of F2SRam/Y males tested in parentheses. See Figure 1 for details. Data of SR and ST populations were obtained from Table 1. Standard errors were calculated taking into account the nested design (they have 5 d.f. in populations 7 and 8).
