  • Ne =Θ/4μ is calculated using a mutation rate (μ) of 1 × 10-4 obtained by averaging across scaled estimates of μ for each microsatellite. Θ for each population was obtained by summing over sampled genealogies and likelihood surfaces. Estimates of Θ obtained by integrating over all microsatellites are not shown, only the translation of this value into Ne.
