Table 2 Results of the multiple linear regressions between nucleotide diversity (π), topographic heterogeneity [estimated as the third quartile (Q3) of the terrain ruggedness index (TRI), and median and modus calculated for data above Q3], and the area size of the topographic units inhabited by particular slow-worm lineages/haplogroups

  1. In the first set of analyses the Apuseni Mts. were considered to be a part of the Carpathians, in the second set of analyses they were treated as a separate geographical unit. Coefficients of determination (R2) were computed for the overall model of multiple regressions [TRI (Q3)/area, TRI (median above Q3)/area, TRI (modus above Q3)/area]. Standardized regression coefficients (beta) were calculated for the partial regressions between nucleotide diversity and TRI values, and nucleotide diversity and the area size, respectively
