Past effective population size ( N
) over the past generations based on linkage disequilibrium calculations from 26 autosomes. We estimated N
from the average r2 at different marker distances using three different cM/Mb conversion rates: a) 1 cM ~ 1 Mb (red), b) 1.85 cM ~ 1 Mb (blue) or c) individual rates for each chromosome, as indicated in Table 1 (green). Data points were based on at least 1,000 marker pairs.
