  1. Bayesian estimates and linkage disequilibrium of effective number of breeder were calculated using OneSamp and LDNe softwares respectively, with CL the 95% credible limits for the posterior distribution of Ne and allele ν the lowest allele frequency. Mark Release Recapture (MRR) estimates of consensus population size in 1995 (parental generation of Ne estimate) were inferred from Jolly-Seber models implemented in the Mark software [33].
