  1. F-analyses of variance of the differentiation at microsatellite and mitochondrial markers for each population. The clusters were previously defined by analysing the microsatellite genotypes with the program Geneland. k is the number of clusters. F-estimates significantly greater than zero are in bold and 95% confidence intervals are given in brackets.
