Table 3 Genetic diversity estimates and deviation from equilibrium for each of three samples groupings: phylogenetic clades, geographic regions, and ecogeographic units.

From: Population history, phylogeography, and conservation genetics of the last Neotropical mega-herbivore, the lowland tapir (Tapirus terrestris)

Grouping (sample size) Haplotype diversity (H d ) Nucleotide diversity (π) Tajima's D and Fu's F, and associated pvalues
