Table 5 Relatedness and genetic distance values were obtained from microsatellite data and computed both within and between samples (KB - Kabunkanga, MF - Murchison Falls, OK - Okame)

From: Genetic diversity and population structure of Glossina pallidipes in Uganda and western Kenya

  1. dF - mean pairwise genetic distance between female flies, dM - mean pairwise genetic distance between male flies, rF - mean pairwise relatedness between females, rM - mean pairwise relatedness between males.
  2. One-sided t-tests were used to ascertain the significance of male-biased dispersal, i.e. higher relatedness and lower genetic distance of male versus female individuals between populations. Significant P-values are denoted in bold, italic font
