  1. n: Sample size; A: allelic richness (estimated for a sample size of 29 individuals); H o : observed heterozygosity; H e : gene diversity; F IS values calculated after Weir and Cockerham [24]. Asterisks refer to the significance level of the tests for heterozygosity deficiency (*, p < 0.05; **, p < 0.01; ***, p < 0.001).
