Fig. S1 Density plots of exploratory runs (termed A, B, C, D, E) shown with plots of the consensus reference runs (termed Ref). All plots are based on data from Masai Mara. Exploratory runs are named as in Settings for MSVAR above. Panel a shows density plots for parameters N0 and N1, panel b shows density plots for parameter T.
Fig. S2 Density graphs showing parameter posterior densities of (a) N0, (b) N1 and (c) T from all individual populations and the combined East African population. Parameters are depicted as in Fig. 2. First axis is on logarithmic scale. Abbreviations correspond to those in Fig. 1: AMB, Amboseli; NAI, Nairobi; MM, Masai Mara; LAI, Laikipia; NAK, Nakuru; KV, Kidepo Valley; MF, Murchison Falls; LM, Lake Mburo; QE, Queen Elizabeth.
Fig. S3 Bayesian Skyline Plot (BSP) comparing the demographic history of the combined East African population with the two focal populations, Masai Mara and Queen Elizabeth. The thick lines show mean values and the correspondingly formatted thin lines show the lower and upper 95% HPDs.
Fig. S4 BSPs showing N through time for the remaining individual populations. Each panel shows the BSP of an individual population. Full lines show the inferred mean value of NE, dashed lines show the upper and lower 95% HPDs. Sampling localities are indicated in each panel.
