Table 1 Summary of pairwise genetic distances matrix for Cytochrome b, ND1 and COI sequences providing minimum, maximum and mean distances (%) for both intra-form and inter-form comparisons

From: Molecular phylogeny, morphology and life-history comparisons within Circus cyaneus reveal the presence of two distinct evolutionary lineages
