Because of a typesetting error, the symbol “σ” is incorrectly displayed as “s” in the legends of Figures 1, 2, and 5.

In the Results section, the sentence “These data consist of ~800,000 polymorphic SNPs in a total of 309 unrelated individuals” should be “These data consist of ~800,000 polymorphic SNPs in a total of 209 unrelated individuals.”

In the section “Widespread Signals of Recent Selection,” the sentence “For example, in simulations matching aspects of the Yoruba data, only 0.1% of windows of 50 consecutive SNPs had more than 16 SNPs with |iHS| > 20” should be “For example, in simulations matching aspects of the Yoruba data, only 0.1% of windows of 50 consecutive SNPs had more than 16 SNPs with |iHS| > 2.0.”
