  1. The number of populations and individuals are shown for the raw datasets and after applying quality control. The number of autosomal SNPs available per species before quality control is also shown. The main cause for excluding a population was a lack of a sufficient number of individuals (n < 15)
  2. QC quality control, SNPs single nucleotide polymorphisms
