  1. aNumber of genes sampled obtained from the inferred genotypes of females and males. Unequal sample sizes among loci within each species result from missing or incomplete data.
  2. bTotal number of observed alleles.
  3. cNumber of alleles that would have been observed if only 50 genes had been sampled.
  4. dEffective number of alleles.
  5. eExpected heterozygosity.
  6. fRange in allele size.
