Table 2 Bayesian clustering analyses and different models used to infer the optimal number of population (K)

From: Chinstrap penguin population genetic structure: one or more populations along the Southern Ocean?

Bayesian clustering software Model use Inferred number of cluster (K)
BAPS Spatial, with mixture model K = 1
  Spatial, with admixture model K = 1
  Non-spatial model, with admixture model K = 7
GENELAND Spatial model, with uncorrelated allele frequency K = 1
  Spatial model, with correlated allele frequency K = 3
STRUCTURE Admixture, with correlated allele frequency, using location information K = 1
