  1. Statistics for microsatellite typing of cat populations in the Australian mainland, Australian islands and Southeast Asia (based on 11 loci), including population sample size (N), mean number of alleles per locus (NA), observed (H O ) and expected (H E ) heterozygosity, inbreeding coefficient (F IS ) and number of private alleles per population over all loci (PA)
  2. aSample size lower than 10 are not considered for population genetic parameters
