Table 3 Rates of type I error measured by generating 1000 pseudo-observed datasets with a known continuity scenario and testing for population continuity with four sets of 1000 simulations generated under four different continuity scenarios (P = panmictic, SP = spatially-explicit with various intensities of gene flow, from the lowest Nm5 to the highest Nm50)
