CFP

(YELLOW) = FLORIDA PANTHERS


EVG (PINK) = EVERGLADES FLORIDA PANTHERS
TX (RED) = TEXAS PANTHERS
TX-BC, CFPxTX-F1, EVGxTX-F1, AdmFP (ORANGE) = MIXED PANTHERS (part texas, part something else)
Unk (Gray) = UNCLEAR


Figure 1: (A) Minimum annual subadult and adult panther population size and inferred genetic
heritage from 1986 to 2007. CFPs are yellow, EVGs pink, TXs red, CFPxTX-F1s and EVGxTX-F1s
orange, TX-BCs and other AdmFPs shades of orange, and genetically uncharacterized individuals
(Unk) gray. The black line is an independent minimum-count estimate from surveys of tracks,
spoor, and other field evidence. (B) Mean yearly adult multilocus heterozygosity. (C) Yearly mean
age of adults. (D) Projected survivorship (probability of surviving to an age) curves for female
Florida panthers of different genetic heritages with standard error bars (13). Male trends are
similar (table S4).
