Table 3 Effective population size and migration rate

From: Reproductive isolation, evolutionary distinctiveness and setting conservation priorities: The case of European lake whitefish and the endangered North Sea houting (Coregonusspp.)

  1. Estimates of effective population size (N e ) and migration rate (m) and their 95% confidence intervals in VID and RIN, using two temporal methods assuming a closed population [56] and a population open to gene flow [57], respectively.
