  1. This table indicates the parameters used to simulate data under four different models (see Figure 2). (1)Sample size refers to the number of individuals per population retained in the analyses.
  2. (2)The first migration rate refers to between-population migration, whereas the second refers to migration between the higher hierarchical levels.
