  1. The following parameters were fixed in all data sets: diploidy, hermaphroditic, random mating, finite island model, five subpopulations, equal number of individuals in all subpopulations, constant population size, migration rate m = 0.01, KAM mutation model, equal frequencies for all allelic states in the initial population, free recombination between loci, mutation rate: 10-3 for microsatellite loci and 5 × 10-7 for SNP loci. n a : number of alleles; H O : observed heterozygosity; H S : mean subpopulation gene diversity; H T : mean total gene diversity
