a, Satellite view of the Galapagos Islands (top; scale bar: 50 km) and Aldabra Atoll (bottom left; scale bar: 10 km), and pictures of C. abingdonii (middle) and A. gigantea (bottom right). Both pictures are from http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov. b, Demographic history of giant tortoises, inferred using a hidden Markov model approach as implemented in the PSMC model. The default mutation rate (μ) for humans of 2.5 × 10−8 and an average generation time (g) of 25 years were used in the calculations.
