  1. Summary statistics of the genetic diversity of 13 geographical breed groups; group names, number of breeds (Nb of breeds), sample sizes (N), observed (Ho) and unbiased expected (He) heterozygosities, mean number alleles (MNA), and allelic richness corrected for sample size (Rt) are shown; SD = standard deviation.
