Table 5 Summary of genetic distances of COI and H3 in three European Collembola species (Ceratophysella denticulata, Folsomia quadrioculata and Isotomiella minor). Mean p-distances are in percent with standard deviation (a) between and within populations, (b) geographic regions, and of (c) geographic clusters with exceptionally low genetic distances

From: Founder events and pre-glacial divergences shape the genetic structure of European Collembola species
