Data from: Recent colonization of the Galapagos by the tree Geoffroea spinosa Jacq. (Leguminosae)

This study puts together genetic data and an Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) approach to infer the time at which the tree Geoffroea spinosa colonized the Galápagos Islands. The genetic diversity and differentiation between Peru and Galápagos population samples, estimated using three chloroplast spacers and six microsatellite loci, reveal significant differences between two mainland regions separated by the Andes mountains (Inter Andean versus Pacific Coast) as well as a significant genetic differentiation of island populations. Microsatellites...
