Table 6 Hierarchical Analysis of Molecular Variance (AMOVA) for Lampropholis delicata populations and biogeographic regions.

From: Phylogeographic divergence in the widespread delicate skink (Lampropholis delicata) corresponds to dry habitat barriers in eastern Australia

Comparison Observed Partition Total Variance Components Total Sum of Squares P

  1. Separate analyses are conducted for the nine biogeographic barriers that were identified a priori (Tables 1 and 2), and including the two additional barriers identified a posteriori (i.e. Blackdown Tableland, Coolah Tops). The degrees of freedom are indicated in parentheses. Statistical significance (P) was tested with 10,000 permutations.
