Table 5 Characteristics of the microsatellite markers showing the number of individuals typed at each locus (N), the number of alleles observed at each locus (Alleles), expected heterozygosity (H e ), observed heterozygosity (H o ), the heterozygote deficit within the population (F is ), and the P value of the heterozygote deficit

  1. Significant p-values are Bonferroni corrected to be <0.00714. “Overall” shows the calculations performed across the seven loci retained in the analysis (excluding M21). The citations indicate where the primer sequences are published. The decimal N indicates individuals where only one of two alleles could be determined at that locus.
