Create a table of summary statistics per locus.
1 2  locus_table(x, index = "simpson", lev = "allele", population = "ALL",
information = TRUE)

x 
a genind or genclone object. 
index 
Which diversity index to use. Choices are

lev 
At what level do you want to analyze diversity? Choices are

population 
Select the populations to be analyzed. This is the
parameter 
information 
When 
a table with 4 columns indicating the Number of alleles/genotypes observed, Diversity index chosen, Nei's 1978 gene diversity (expected heterozygosity), and Evenness.
The calculation of Hexp
is (n/(n  1))*(1  sum(p^2)) where p is the allele
frequencies at a given locus and n is the number of observed alleles (Nei,
1978) in each locus and then returning the average. Caution should be
exercised in interpreting the results of Hexp with polyploid organisms with
ambiguous ploidy. The lack of allelic dosage information will cause rare
alleles to be overrepresented and artificially inflate the index. This is
especially true with small sample sizes.
If lev = "genotype"
, then all statistics reflect genotypic diversity
within each locus. This includes the calculation for Hexp
, which turns
into the unbiased Simpson's index.
