  1. All values calculated from data in [2], supporting material.
  2. aSimple: diploid formula from [4].
  3. bAveraged: average of estimates across biological replicates, ± standard deviation of estimates.
  4. cML: maximum likelihood estimator, as suggested by Wang and Luo.
  5. dOverall: estimate on overall seed counts.
  6. eComplete quadrivalent model as derived from [3], with correct marker locations.
