  1. Genetic differentiation among all nests within each population (Fst) and gene diversity (Hs) for the microsatellite and mitochondrial markers, as well as the corresponding estimates of male (N m m m ) or female (N f m f ) gene flow among nests. The ratio N m m m /N f m f provides a rough estimate of the relative contribution to gene flow of males, as compared to females. The 95% confidence intervals obtained by bootstrapping over microsatellite loci are indicated in brackets.
