  • Values are no. of clones with arrays of a given length.

  • a All perch samples investigated for heteroplasmy by cloning of PCR products originated from lakes in southern Norway, and all except the Mær individuals came from the western side of the Oslofjord (Refseth et al. 1998).

  • b The three-unit arrays possessed TT last units, while the rest possessed GC last units, i.e., site heteroplasmy.

  • c The four- and five-unit arrays possessed a type A second repeat (see Table 2), i.e., site heteroplasmy.

  • d These individuals did not appear heteroplastic when sequenced directly.

  • e Four PCR products were obtained from the same individual. DNA was isolated from tail fin tissue (Ravalsjøen #5) and three mature oocytes (Ravalsjøen #5 egg #1, 2, and 3).
