  1. Values for populations 1‒6 were recalculated from Pellegrino et al. (2015), only for the loci we used in this study. Number of genotyped individuals (n) and the type of site they were collected from, number of alleles per locus (A), number of effective alleles (Ae), observed (Ho) and expected (He) heterozygosity and inbreeding coefficient (Fis). Values are presented as mean ± standard error
