Dataset for the paper by A.M. Makarieva (2001) "Variance of protein heterozygosity in different species of mammals with respect to the number of loci studied", Heredity, 87(1), 4151. Abstract, full text (PDF, 0.4 Mb).
Protein heterozygosity of natural species of mammals
1) L is the number of studied loci, N is the number of studied individuals, H_{L} is the expected heterozygosity.
2) Only values of the expected heterozygosity H_{L} were considered. If it was not known from the source of data what heterozygosity value (observed or expected) was published, H_{L} was calculated from corresponding allele frequencies, see formulas (1)(2) in the paper. Such values are marked with an asterisk *. In case of HardyWeinberg equilibrium the published values were considered as values of expected heterozygosity and were included into the analysis.
3) If a certain species was represented by two or more populations where the same number of L loci was studied, the population with the largest number of studied individuals was taken. For those populations for which data for several years were available, heterozygosity values were averaged over the years and weighted by numbers of individuals studied each year.
4) If for a given species there were several values of heterozygosity obtained in different populations with different numbers of studied loci L, all these values were used only if they all belonged to different intervals of L, see Fig. 1 in the paper. If some of them fell within the same int erval, only one value of H_{L} with the largest L was considered.
5) Only populations with ten or more studied individuals were considered.
6) In most cases data on zoo and laboratory populations of mammals were not considered.
