Figure S1. Bayesian skyline plot of bowhead effective population size over time. Indicated on graph are the median posterior effective population size (black) and the upper and lower bounds of the highest posterior density (HPD) intervals (gray).

Table S1. Sample information for the Holocene bowhead whale bone specimens including sample ID's (as designated by the Natural Resources DNA Profiling and Forensic Centre [NRDPFC] and the Geological Survey of Canada [GSC]), bone type, sampling locality, 14C age (reservoir corrected), mitochondrial haplotypes, and species designation.

Table S2. Mitochondrial cytochrome b gene haplotype variable sites as compared to a reference bowhead whale sequence AJ554051 (Arnason, 2004). Dots (.) indicate similarity to reference sequence. The sequence variable sites for the single musk ox haplotype (OMOCB1) have not been included here.

Table S3. Mitochondrial control region haplotype variable sites as compared to a reference bowhead whale sequence AJ554051 (Arnason, 2004). Dots (.) indicate similarity to reference sequence. `BMCR#' denotes new haplotypes found in this study, with `BM' denoting the initials for genera and species (Balaena mysticetus) and `CR' denoting mtDNA control region.

Table S4. Power for detecting difference in estimates of mtDNA diversity (h and π) in a.) CCA only and b.) CCA and EGS bowhead whale control region across four postglacial climatic intervals.
