Table 4 Inferred distribution of s values [119] calculated under a complex biogeographic hypothesis when compared to a null hypothesis of allopatric differentiation.

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

Generation* Effective Population Size (Ne) Inferred s(99% CI)
1,250 10,000 19.04 (14 - 23)
1,250 1,000,000 21.116 (15 -25)
375,000 10,000 14.93 (12 - 16)
375,000 1,000,000 17.84 (13 - 21)
  1. a assuming a generation time of 8 years, which gives 10,000 yr BP and 3.1 My BP for 1,250 and 375,000 generations, respectively.
  2. S values are obtained from 1,000 trees simulated under a null model of allopatric divergence (scenario b in Figure 4). Similar values were obtained for scenario c in Figure 4. Trees were simulated under neutral coalescent with no migration under varying generation times and effective population sizes. Observed s = 4.
