Table 3 Long-term Ne estimates based on genetic diversity (expected heterozygosity) in each collection site, assuming microsatellite loci follow an SMM (see text).

  1. He, unbiased heterozygosity [15]; Ne, mean effective population size calculated across all loci (± standard deviation); μ, mutation rate; RR, relative ratio of Neμ compared to the A. m. moucheti population with the smallest effective population size (Bufurima island).
