NOT PEER-REVIEWED
"PeerJ Preprints" is a venue for early communication or feedback before peer review. Data may be preliminary.

Supplemental Information

Supplemental Code

Two R code files are included the first: "model_functions.R" contains the code used to run the model as described here. The second "run_lionfish_colonizations.R" initializes the relevant data collected from the literature as described in the manuscript and runs the model for different source and destination populations.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3033v1/supp-1

Supplemental Raw Data - FASTA

This file contains mtDNA sequence data from the control region of Pterois volitans in the FASTA file format. Samples were obtained from Indonesia, the western North Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico via GenBank ( Freshwater et al., 2009; Betancur-R. et al., 2011; Toledo-Hernández et al., 2014; Butterfield et al., 2015; Johnson et al., 2016).

Supplemental Raw Data - Arlequin

This file contains mtDNA sequence data from the control region of Pterois volitans in the Arelquin file format. Samples were obtained from Indonesia, the western North Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico via GenBank ( Freshwater et al., 2009; Betancur-R. et al., 2011; Toledo-Hernández et al., 2014; Butterfield et al., 2015; Johnson et al., 2016).
