 Average Fst values for K (estimated population clusters) equals 2 and K equals 3. If K = 2, Fst values are similar which implies genetic similarity between populations. If K = 3, Fst values are similar for two population clusters and one cluster has an extremely low value of 0.3391. That extremely low value implies Cluster 3 is sharing genetic material through inbreeding and appears to be isolated
