  1. The 95% confidence intervals (N e ± t × standard error over estimates) are indicated in square brackets, from which densities were estimated. Migration rate m and dispersal distance σ were estimated with Rousset's model of isolation by distance in two dimensions and 95% confidence intervals indicated in square brackets were computed by bootstrap over loci (see text for more details).
