  1. a18S = 18S rRNA genes. 28S = 28S rRNA genes. rPokeyB, rmPok2 and mPok1 were not detected in these four isolates
  2. bAverage and High correspond to the sequence labels in Fig. 4
  3. cThe number of differences between the consensus and each of 12 cloned 1500 bp sequences was determined for each isolate. Gaps were included in the analysis. Consecutive gaps were counted as one variant nucleotide position
  4. dAll other values were 0 or 1 for this isolate
  5. eANOVA was used to compare the mean number of differences across all four isolates. This test was significant (F = 6.62, d.f. = 3, p = 0.0009). A Post hoc Tukey's HSD test was used to determine if means in the Average and High isolates from the same population were significantly different. They p-values refer to the Tukey’s tests
