Following publication of the original article [1], a typographical error in the formula for calculating di in the “Scans for local adaptation” subsection in the Method section, was identified. The correct formula should be

$$ {d}_i=\sum \limits_{j\ne i}\left({F}_{st}\left(i,j\right)-E\left[{F}_{st}\left(i,j\right)\right]\right)/ sd\left({F}_{st}\left(i,j\right)\right) $$

The authors apologize for any confusion this error may have caused.
