  1. Results are presented for Acanthodactylus aureus, A. dumerili/senegalensis and A. longipes. Significant values after Bonferroni correction are marked with an asterisk. Since the heterozygote deficiency was estimated in GENEPOP while null alleles were assessed in MICROCHECKER, differences in the estimation methods may explain the observed lack of concordance between heterozygote deficiency and null alleles in some cases
  2. –, markers that failed to amplify in a certain species
