Table 2 Genetic variability estimates for eleven microsatellite loci tested in the European mink datasets Ia and IIb. The variable provided are: number of individuals tested (n), number of total alleles (NA), the total private allele (PA) with the corresponding percentage in brackets, allelic diversity (A), observed and expected heterozygosities, HO and HE respectively, and mean FIS (Wright’s statistic)

From: Patterns of genetic variation in the endangered European mink (Mustela lutreola L., 1761)
