Table 2 Posterior mean migration rates and standard deviation of the marginal posterior distribution for each estimate. Mean migration rates (m) as a proportion from 0 to 1 and standard deviation (s.d.) were calculated between Atlantic and Indian Ocean populations of the blue petrel Halobaena caerulea, thin-billed prion Pachyptila belcheri, and Antarctic prion P. desolata
