Table 5 Estimated spatial expansion parameters of τ, θ and M for Begonia luzhaiensis based on trnC-ycf6 spacer sequence

From: Phylogeography of Begonia luzhaiensis suggests both natural and anthropogenic causes for the marked population genetic structure

τ θ M SSD (P-value) Time of expansion (Ma)
1.161 (0.338–3.443) 0.361 (0.001–1.333) 6.625 (0.333–1047.893) 0.002 (0.758) 2.047 (0.596–6.072)
  1. These parameters were obtained from the mismatch distribution under the spatial expansion model. Value in parentheses indicate 95% confidence intervals
