  1. # G: number of genets typed with AFLP markers. # loc: number of AFLP loci. PPL: percentage polymorphic loci at the 5% level corrected for sample size. Br: band richness corrected for sample size. Hj (S.E.): expected heterozygosity or Nei's gene diversity and its standard error. F IS : average inbreeding coefficient. Filled seeds (%): the average percentage of filled seeds per shrub. Seed viability (%): the average percentage of viable seeds per shrub. *The Flemish population Heiderbos was analysed twice (in 2005 for the sampling on the northwestern European scale and in 2008 for the sampling on the Flemish scale).
  2. NA: not assessed.
