  1. Populations from the SARDI (AMGRC) collection were represented by a single individual.
  2. 1 among these 26 populations, 14 were collected in Corsica.
  3. 2 among these 15 populations 4 were collected in Crete.
  4. 3 the cultivated populations are: Borung, Caliph, Cyprus, Jemalong, Mogul, Paraggio and Sephi (we used 1 line per population except for Cyprus which was represented by 2 lines).
