Table 1 Variables and constant parameters used in the study

From: Gene flow analysis method, the D-statistic, is robust in a wide parameter space

Variable Scheme 1: analysis of branch lengths and population Scheme 2: analysis of outgroup distance Scheme 3: analysis of number and size of loci Scheme 4: analysis of diploid data
