Table S1. Summary table of data and data sources used to assess the sustainability of zoo populations. Au. Australasia; Eu. Europe; GD. gene diversity; Int. international; m. month(s); mean MK. average mean kinship; N. America. North America; NK. not known; No. number; S. Africa. South Africa; S. America. South America; SB. studbook; UTC. unable to calculate (too few known data in the studbook); W. Africa. West Africa; y. year(s). Note (1) Gene diversity (GD) is the proportion of genetic variability in the wild source population that is retained in the captive population; average mean kinship (mean MK) is a measure of the average relatedness of animals in the population: the higher the average mean kinship value, the more interrelated the population. Note (2) Dates in ‘Current to’ column follow the British date system of day/month/year, where 12/07/2006 is 12 July 2006.
