Table 4 M -ratio simulations for the temporal groups

From: Living on the edge: reconstructing the genetic history of the Finnish wolf population

Table a) shows the proportion of simulated equilibrium populations with smaller than observed M- ratio
a) Before 1920, N= 12, M= 0.794 1960 - 1979, N =22, M= 0.910

  1. Used constant values for simulations: μ = 2 × 10-4 and δ g  = 3.1. Significant MC-values in Table b) are bolded. Sample from 1920–1959 was not tested owing to small sample size.
  2. N = number of samples, M = average M-ratio over all loci, Θ = 4Neμ, pg = proportion of not single-step mutations and δg = mean step size.
