Table 3 Hierarchical partitioning of AFLP variation based on Analyses of Molecular Variance of Pericallis species in the Azores and Canaries. P < 0.001

From: Why do different oceanic archipelagos harbour contrasting levels of species diversity? The macaronesian endemic genus Pericallis (Asteraceae) provides insight into explaining the ‘Azores diversity Enigma’

Archipelago Source of variation d.f. Percentage of variation
Azores (K = 3) Among groups 2 21.08
Among populations within groups 11 0.77
Within populations 69 78.14
Canaries (K = 5) Among groups 4 10.37
Among populations within groups 9 2.34
Within populations 57 87.28
