  • All values represent Spearman's coefficient of rank correlation; P-values (two-tailed) follow in parentheses. All 14 loci were used for the analyses involving the sequence-independent estimate of recombination, RN. Our ρ and γ estimates were obtained from L. peruvianum sequences, and the correlation analyses shown are based on the 9 loci with experimentally established haplotype phase (see text).
