Genetic Structure among Populations

Comparison of population distances with results of test for their statistical significance.
Values below the diagonal indicate estimates of population pairwise FST calculated assuming Tamura-Nei mutation model. Values above the diagonal indicate P values of permutation test (n=1,023) for the null hypothesis of FST=0 by the software Arlequin version 2.000 (Schneider et al. 2000).
