  1. The estimates of G ST were calculed using the Hamilton and Miller’s method [21, eq. 10] and the Ennos’s method [43, eq. 5aa] in Avicennia germinans (black mangrove) and Rhizophora mangle (red mangrove) across four Panamanian estuaries. The comparison of F ST , F IS and outcrossing level (t) between A. germinans and R. mangle did not show significant differences between species (Kruskall-Wallis ANOVA, P>0.05, N=4).
