  1. AMOVA for individuals of P. viridis from breeding sites in Israel (parts A and B) and from four sites in other countries (part C) based on RAPD and AFLP analyses. p value estimates are based on 999 permutations. df degrees of freedom, SS sum of squared observations, MS mean of squared observations, Est var estimated variance, PhiPT proportion of the total genetic variance among individuals within populations, PhiRT proportion of the total genetic variance among regions, PhiPR proportion of the total genetic variance among populations within regions.
