Fast Evolution from Precast Bricks: Genomics of Young Freshwater Populations of Threespine Stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus

Figure 4

Comparison of mean frequencies of freshwater alleles at marker SNPs within and outside of identified DIs, at freshwater populations of different ages.

Each two boxes correspond to the four young freshwater populations (anadromous from Lake Ershovskoye, Lake Martsy, Quarry Malysh, Quarry Goluboy). Statistical analysis was performed with two-tailed nonparametric Mann–Whitney U test. P values of <0.001 are designated with three (***) asterisks. Dashes, boxes and whiskers correspond to the median, standard deviation, and 5th and 95th percentiles, respectively. Red, marker SNPs (under the strong criterion) located within clumps; purple, marker SNPs (under the strong criterion) located outside clumps.
