  1. The (N) number of individuals, number of base pairs analysed (bp), the number of unique haplotypes (h), haplotype diversity (Hd) and nucleotide diversity (π) and global and Fst values are given for each comparison. Values in brackets represent the significance values or the standard deviations for mean estimates
