NGC/SS: number of gene copies/sample size; NH: number of haplotypes; NPS: number of polymorphic sites; GD: gene diversity; ND: nucleotide diversity (based on polymorphic loci only); MIHD: mean interhaplotypic distance (based on Kimura 2P method); SD: standard deviation (for both the sampling and the stochastic processes); 𝜋 : mean number of pairwise difference (based on polymorphic loci only). Populations sharing the superscript a, b, or c have some haplotypes in common. Populations sharing the superscript d, e, or f were not significantly different from each other when tested using global test of population differentiation, based on Markov chain length of 10000 (significance level = 0.05). 𝐷 : Tajima’s test of selective neutrality. 𝜃 𝜋 , 𝜃 𝑆 , and 𝜃 𝐾 are different estimators of theta ( 𝜃 ). *: Values in the square brackets are 95% confidence interval limits around 𝜃 𝐾 . Note: for analysis at mountain-system level, all individuals of the same category were pooled together as a single unit.
