Diagram of the stepwise procedure followed for approximate Bayesian computations performed using the DIYABC program. All colonization scenarios tested assumed four current populations (NE, SE, France and Spain) and their divergence from a single ancient population. The events (size variation, divergence and/or admixture) that defined each scenario are depicted as changes in the pattern (colour or shape) in the branches of each coalescent tree. Time of events (Ti) is shown on the right. Time 0 is the sampling time of populations. The best scenario identified in each step is also highlighted (Scenario 2, PP = 0.40)
